As we have years of experience with the Harvard Negotiating Approach, we are regularly consulted to help deadlocked partnerships, to restructure business partnerships and / or to help resolve conflicts. We have incorporated these experiences into a one-day program.
For this one-day workshop we assume that you are familiar with the basic principles of ‘Constructive Negotiations’ based on the Harvard principles.
What to expect?
In this workshop you will gain insight into how people influence each other, both consciously and unconsciously, and how to deal with emotions and power games.
We focus on processes that enable you, together with the other parties involved, to come up with creative solutions for personal and business conflicts. How does your personal negotiation style influence the conflict? How can you use your strengths to find a solution? You may also run into (personal) barriers, which we will help you overcome.
Topics that will be covered are, amongst others:
Principles / attitude: The principles and rules of thumb of Constructive Negotiations, applied to managing conflicts.
Process / structure / decision-making: A structure that helps you to resolve a conflict constructively.
Relational dynamics: How do people influence each other, consciously and unconsciously? In particular, we deal with difficult emotions that may arise as a result of diverging expectations, power games and / or cultural differences. We also pay attention to 'depressurizing' and 'connecting & continuing'.
Creativity: Creating the willingness to achieve progress requires creativity. How do you create the conditions for this and how do you manage this process?
Parts of the Workshop
You will review the 7 principles of negotiating constructively. Additionally, we ask you to draw upon your own experience: you'll analyze your own case with the help of our checklist 'conflict management'. These cases serve as the fuel for our workshop days.
Exercises are the focus on this day.
Because we work in small groups, we create safe/intimate climate which fosters experimentation and personal feedback. A unique opportunity to try different styles of communication!
Evaluation & Results
Three months later we measure how and in which situations you have implemented your new skills. You will reflect upon yourself: to what extent have you used your new insights and which goals did you reach?
What are the Results?
