Seminar overview

The goal of the workshop is to build the negotiation skills of the participants since success in negotiation is often not a matter of chance, but the result of good planning and specialized skills. This two-day workshop is a follow-up of the Seminar held by Raymond Saner on 27th May.
In order to be successful negotiators we need to be able to identify the actual process and its various phases, as well as learn how to manage the course of negotiations. We can participate in bilateral or multilateral negotiations, become part of pure bargaining or a more complex process of negotiation, lobby or looking for a compromise. It is important to know the characteristics of these phases and practices in order to employ the right tools, strategies and tactics that would lead us to the desired outcome(s).
The first module will introduce participants to the theory and practice of negotiations and present concepts relevant for practicing negotiatiors.The second module of the seminar will focus on the characteristics of bargaining and relationship-building. The third part will touch upon the overlap between negotiations and culture in order to explain better the understanding of what compromise is and how the certain outcomes are seen by different actors depending on their upbringing/culture.
The training will include theory, discussion, case studies and role plays.
