Getting More, How You Can Negotiate to Succeed in Work and Life (Keynote and workshop)

The course deals with addressing emotions explicitly, to prompt more focus on goals, listening and creativity. As such, human psychology is much more important than economics or law in achieving better agreements. The new model is captured in a four quadrant format that enables people to prepare effectively for any negotiation.

In a two-day course, there are five cases. The first case involves power, trust, and cultural diversity. The second case addresses how to add value to negotiations. The third case addresses risk and coalition building. That is day 1. Day 2 involves using the Getting More problem-solving process to solve the participants’ real, active problems.

There is also an abbreviated one day course that does not have the risk/coalition building case or the first of the two problem-solving exercises.

Workshops are typically 2 days for corporations, and the most common number of participants is 24 to 42, with a maximum of approximately 60.
