You will learn this in Negotiation skills

For many of us, negotiation is associated with stressful, high-stakes talks and clashes of interests. Yet, science teaches us that being a successful negotiator is never about having the biggest ego or the loudest voice in the room. In this course, we bring negotiation down to earth and show you the fundamental interpersonal dynamics at play in any negotiation situation.

It’s important to remember what it really means to ‘win’ a negotiation. It’s not about getting everything that you want. On the contrary, it’s about successfully balancing your interests with those of the other party and achieving a scenario that is mutually beneficial. Only then will you keep the relationship healthy and intact—the desired outcome of any successful negotiation.


  • Your colleagues will see you as a skilled, flexible negotiator
  • Your colleagues will benefit from your ability to secure win-win outcomes
  • Your colleagues will engage constructively in internal negotiations with you


During this course, you will discover new skills and topics such as how to effectively prepare for a negotiation and how to define a results-oriented negotiation strategy. You will also learn about creating a constructive climate during negotiations, exploring a wide range of negotiation styles, tactics, and strategies, as well as learning to identify and handle manipulation and dirty tricks.
