Use calculator to show CLE credit for your state.
Most lawyers devote the lion’s share of negotiation planning to marshalling facts and building arguments. Encouraged by a culture of oppositional negotiation, it is easy to become entrenched in our positions. As a result, any proposal that appears counter to our positions is regarded as threatening to success. This course introduces an expansive negotiation style which increases our aptitude for persuasion, while reducing defensiveness and aggressive behavior on both sides of the table.
The Negotiation Success Series builds upon sections from our negotiation-based course Lessons From Aristotle. Although the Negotiation Success Series introduces substantial new material, some of the material overlaps and will be a review for those who have taken Lessons From Aristotle. Each of the five sections in the Negotiation Success Series stands alone, so please register for any or all of the sections that are of interest to you.
