Preparation is one of the most important aspects of long-term negotiation success. This program examines two aspects of negotiation preparation and a highly effective model for creating a map of needs and interests in order to increase influence and cooperation in negotiation.

  • Learn to identify both party‚Äôs real needs and interests
  • Foster an environment of cooperation
  • Reduce negotiation risk with reference points for success

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.

Segment 1: 60 minutes   Leverage Through Empathic Investigation
Our typical negotiation styles consider our needs, but often overlook the needs of the other side. This section includes a detailed process for creating a substantial needs and interests map as a means toward developing and proposing solutions which are beneficial to us, and acceptable to them.
Segment 2: 60 minutes   Communicating Toward Cooperation
Meeting our objectives becomes exponentially more feasible when we effectively communicate to others that we have considered their perspective. We can accomplish this by communicating through a framework of genuine curiosity. The result is reciprocity and a more willing partner.
