Course 2: Negotiation Strategies
Instructor: Gail Levitt

Learning Objectives:
Use your preparation time more wisely and efficiently when you plan to negotiate. Navigate the negotiation process more deliberately and systematically. Gain new insights about your negotiating style strengths and areas for development. Build more trusting partnerships with diverse and challenging people. Respond more strategically to the expected and unexpected when negotiating. Influence and persuade others by following a more deliberate process to gain their buy-in, commitment, and
accountability for action.

Now, more than ever before, negotiating for business requires great agility to adjust to new situations in different settings, involving working remotely, communicating virtually, and interacting in person under new social distancing guidelines. To succeed in these uncertain times, business professionals require special skills and new behaviors that enable them to be more convincing, focused, and adaptable. These include more productive and efficient planning and more strategic communication skills to adapt when negotiating, influencing, and persuading internal and external parties to achieve the desired outcomes.

Before the program:

Complete an on-line survey to identify learning goals, priorities, and negotiating and influencing challenges. Complete a Negotiating Style self-assessment on-line.

During and after the program:

Negotiating Tooklit: PDF file with templates, checklists, and resources for negotiating and persuading more effectively. Access to an article by Dr. Gail Levitt entitled “Gaining Accountability from Others” when attempting to influence and persuade them, especially without authority
