Negotiation Success 4: Developing Proposals and Negotiating to Resolution

Use calculator to show CLE credit for your state.

In this section, lawyers learn to develop a range of proposals that address the majority of the needs of both sides, and then discuss a range of negotiation strategies to achieve satisfactory resolutions. The goal of this program is to leave lawyers with strategies for structuring negotiation in a way which ensures that challenging conditions do not derail the process.

  • Identify and establish ground rules to withstand the stress of difficult negotiation
  • Develop and deliver proposals without invoking defensiveness
  • Close deals that meet more client objectives

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   Using the Needs Map to Develop Proposals
In this section, lawyers explore the benefits of in-principle agreements prior to actual negotiation. Attorneys then explore various proposal development theories toward improving success and reducing acrimony in actual negotiations.
Segment 2: 60 minutes   Negotiating to Successful Resolution
The core process of actual “negotiation” will be detailed—how to systematically listen, learn, and “upgrade” proposals based on mutual interests rather than conflicting positions. Of course, even good agreements can fail before documents are signed. Consequently, lawyers will review tactics for closing deals.
