Negotiation is often the best — and sometimes the only — way to develop effective, lasting solutions to many kinds of work problems. This program builds the skills you need to craft constructive agreements between the project team and the other stakeholders. Participative exercises will help you master basic concepts: getting agreement vs. eliminating differences and positions vs. interests. You will also learn when to negotiate, how to prepare for a negotiation, how to manage the aggressive negotiator, and how to deal with " everyday” negotiations. Case studies include both internal negotiations and contract negotiations.

This program will help you develop the personal and professional skills needed to lead your project team. You will learn how to create a shared vision and how to keep your team aligned with that vision through storytelling. The program covers vital general management skills such as motivation, feedback, and delegation. Other topics include how to develop agreement on roles and responsibilities , when to emphasize task behaviors over relationship behaviors, how to build a team that sees itself as a team , and dealing with a difficult team member.

Approximately 70% of class time is devoted to casework and experiential learning. During hands-on exercises, you will work as part of a team to apply the techniques of win-win negotiating to a series of increasingly challenging project negotiations
