What you will learn

Negotiation 101

In Negotiation 101 you will learn as a group and do fun, hands-on activities to practice the two fundamental skills of negotiation: Active Understanding & the Win-Win Mindset

  • Active Understanding - If you want to be a better negotiator, you first  need to convince “the other side” that you really do understand their view and what is important to them.  Through role-play exercises, you will learn how to do this using active listening, labeling, and mirroring.
  • Win-Win Mindset - Outside of the movies, the way you make progress in a negotiation is by leveraging your superior understanding of the issues into a creative, win-win solution for both sides.  You get what you want, but it doesn’t mean the other side “loses”.  Using examples and live breakouts you will see this skill in action.
