About the Event

Understanding the basics of negotiation is fundamental to the mediator’s art, the leader’s success, and the attorney’s professional repertoire. In fact, an ability to negotiate well is a basic life skill for everyone — yet many people, particularly those involved in a conflict, do it poorly. Starting from a footing in theory and research, this course mainly provides attendees with skills and techniques for practicing the art and science of persuasion and negotiation. While focusing on the “interest-based” approach, this course also provides an understanding of how to meet the “hard-bargainer” and the difficult people and challenging situations you face in your work and your life.
