Negotiation - What Lies Beneath
Module 1 takes a big-picture look at negotiating. We define it, consider some of the trends behind its growing, worldwide importance, and examine the surprising shortage of practical information about it. We then identify the all-important boundary between persuasion and negotiation, and look at similarities and differences in negotiating style among cultures.
What "Win-Win" Negotiating is Really All About
Module 2 looks at how humans come pre-wired with a deep-seated need to save face – and a burning desire to retaliate when we don’t. We also look at some historical examples of good not-so-good negotiating.
The Critical Rules of Negotiating
When you boil down all the clichés, theories, and folklore about negotiating, you wind up with a handful of techniques that actually work. These techniques – the 21 Rules of Negotiating – are the heart and soul of good negotiating, and are explained in Modules 3, 4, and 5. We begin with Rules 1 - 7, the Critical Rules of Negotiating.
What "Win-Win" Negotiating is Really All About
Module 4 covers Rules 8 - 11, the Important But Obvious Rules of Negotiating
The "Nice to Do" Rules of Negotiating
Module 5 examines the last of the 21 Rules of Negotiating, Rules 12 - 21 – also known as the “Nice To Do” Rules. Then, with the Rules explained, we embark on the second of the Workshop’s five exercises.
Good concession management is second nature to every accomplished negotiator. Drawing on the results of the Second Negotiation Exercise, participants rapidly develop competence in this key skill.
Under preparation, inadequate information, and disorganization are common mistakes made by less effective negotiators. Here we insure that attendees prepare properly for their negotiations.
Performing a Successful Negotiation
In Module 8 the Rules meet the real world. Here we look at the practicalities of actually carrying out a winning negotiation.
Navigating Negotiation's Minefields
Negotiations don’t always go as smoothly as we’d like. Effective negotiators must be prepared for negotiation’s occasional but predictable special challenges. Here we provide guidelines to help you recognize and manage them.
As we approach the end of the Workshop, we offer suggestions about negotiation leadership, including ideas for implementing good negotiating practices at your organization. Attendees also complete their Personal Negotiating Action Plans for review by the instructor.
