Negotiation for Success

Course Description

Negotiation is an essential skill for many professions. For attorneys, whether your practice involves litigation, legal transactions, or regulatory matters, negotiation skills are critical. This training is for anyone interested in refreshing existing negotiation skills or building new ones — not just lawyers.

This practical, interactive seminar will improve your ability to negotiate effectively by sharpening existing skills and deepening your knowledge of fundamental, science‐based principles of successful negotiation.

Through exercises, role playing, multi‐media presentations and discussion, participants will be introduced to a systematic way of preparing for and conducting negotiations to enhance power and maximize the potential for making favorable agreements.

At the seminar, you will learn how to:

  • Improve your ability to make good strategic choices in negotiation
  • Learn how to manage negotiation concessions effectively
  • Recognize your strengths and weaknesses in personal negotiation style
  • Systematically prepare for negotiations to minimize the risk of making common and costlynegotiation mistakes
  • Use strategies and tactics for increasing power and managing conflict in negotiations
  • Use interest‐based negotiation strategies that can create value for all participants
