Using proven strategies from the Harvard Negotiation Project, this workshop will offer an overview of the theory and tactics of negotiations, a discussion of ways to manage the emotional dimensions of conflict resolution, and expose students to several key tools of awareness to approach negotiations to seek optimal, mutually agreeable outcomes.

– Key techniques: MESOs, concessions, removing people from negotiations, packages vs. pieces

This workshop is perfect for anyone who anticipates negotiating a salary, a business deal, purchasing a home or car, financing a venture or a loan, pricing a product or service, or going to a yard sale.

Following the program each student will receive individual 1:1 support on a negotiation topic by trainer and certified coach Jane Scudder.
