Learn how to be a better negotiator in a course that's similar to the Negotiation for Managers and Executives course in MIT's Advanced Management Training Program. We're almost always negotiating--whether in business, making a major purchase, or in our personal lives.

Learn an Important Skill that isn't Taught in Most Schools

  • Get more, build relationships, and create value simultaneously.
  • Prepare for high-stakes negotiations with tools like the BATNA.
  • Understand the psychology that drives behavior at negotiating tables.
  • Work smarter when negotiating with people from different cultural backgrounds.

A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips

Negotiation is a skill that we constantly need. Whether buying home or car, negotiating with an employer or client, or stucturing partnerships, being able to both create and claim value through negotiations is essential. This course will give you the approaches, tools, and communication strategies necessary to be a much stronger negotiator with each conceptual module presenting approaches and concepts backed by data from today's preeminent institutions like Harvard and MIT.

Negotiation Approaches that Can be Learned and Used by Anyone

Suitable for people with no formal training in law or business, this course is fun to watch, offers interactive tools and exercies, and includes interviews with two senior executives who have years of experience with high-stakes negotiations. 

Starting with an introduction to the concept of integrative bargaining, you'll then move on to negotiation preparation, then negotiation psychology, then closing strategies, and finally an in-depth look at one of the most relevant and difficult concepts in negotiation--cross cultural negotiations. The course wraps up two expert interviews and an Eazl SideBYSide tutorial that will take you through the use of Hofstede's web-based culture analysis tool.

You will pick up some excellent tips from this course if you already understand the concept of value and marketing principles, but if you are looking for a methodical approach to negotiation from scratch, you may not appreciate the value of the tips, and may be disappointed. The final interview with Brian Burwell is valuable and I understand that the poor sound was flagged up front. It would be an idea to use subtitles for the whole interview so that all of his words are understandable.
