This course trains participants to negotiate more effectively, following an interest-based negotiation model. Each session will begin with a contextual discussion of an “Explore, Expand, Divide” framework for negotiation.

Designed to be practically applicable for professionals who have limited time and resources to devote to negotiation preparation, this approach operationalizes the three most important phases of any negotiation: explore the context of the negotiation (the parties, the resources available to those parties, etc.); expand the constraints of the negotiation (add additional parties, identify new resources, build win-win solutions); and divide the expanded resources appropriately (relying on objective standards to bolster your proposals).

Learning Objectives

After attending this seminar, attendees will be able to:

  • negotiate more effectively.

  • prepare for negotiations more efficiently individually and as teams.

  • better understand the needs and interests of stakeholders and external parties.
