Program convener and Yale SOM lecturer Daylian Cain, PhD will help you develop your own unique negotiating style that can be applied in both professional and personal situations. The focal point of this program is developing practical negotiation skills through live sessions with fellow participants that will prepare you to be an effective leader in a world characterized by increasing complexity.
As technology and automation continue to transform the nature of work, interpersonal skills are becoming increasingly relevant as a way to add a competitive edge in business. The ability to successfully negotiate in a way that delivers value for all parties sets a collaborative tone for future conflict resolution and is an impactful way to stand out as a leader in your organization. Collaborative negotiation places people at the heart of any agreement, deal, or mediation. This helps ensure that all parties involved feel that they have a sense of control and that the outcome is a win-win situation. It also fosters transparency and trust, separates the people from the problem, and encourages shared responsibility for the end result.
