A seminar in effective negotiations, problem solving, and conflict resolution
This workshop has already taken place.
Workshop goals for participants:
- You will understand the value of BATNA: "best alternative to a negotiated agreement"
- You will identify your personal negotiating style or pattern as well as the positive and negative aspects of different styles
- You will practice negotiations specifically designed to challenges of your career and discipline
- You will examine the sources of power and the ethical uses of power strategies
- You will analyze difficult conversations and determine potential means of changing the tone of such conversations through changes in your own actions
- If time and group size permits, you may use a practice approach with a coach and observer to study a challenge faced by one person in your sub-group so that finding positive alternatives to your own case studies can be further developed.
- You will leave with a network of colleagues who face similar challenges to your own so that you can mentor each other as you build a successful career future.
