Leadership series 7: Professional negotiation skills

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 16:00to18:00
 Professional negotiation skills

Great leaders negotiate based on principles. Rather than understanding negotiations as an opportunity to defeat an adversary, they work as a team together with their counterparts, to increase the value of the outcome for every stakeholder. They persuade within a framework of truthfulness, respect, and social responsibility. Their goal is not a short-term personal victory, but a long-term fruitful relationship that benefits everyone.

In this workshop, we will emphasize the importance of continuously improving our negotiation skills, regardless of our area of expertise. In addition, we will increase our ability to identify opportunities for negotiation, and become more persuasive negotiators. Finally, the workshop will offer an opportunity to apply these concepts in practical simulations.


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:​

1. Identify negotiation opportunities​

2. Describe the negotiation process​

3. Apply negotiation tools in practical simulations
