Effective negotiation involves developing a process that leads to constructive outcomes.

Overview

Gain an understanding of how negotiations work and be aware of your impact. The tone of your voice, your body language, and your phrasing can have a significant impact on the process and outcome of any negotiation. Gaining the skills to negotiate, coupled with an understanding of your personal impact, will improve your negotiation technique and lead to better outcomes.

This program combines the negotiation and research expertise of Professor Ray Fells from the UWA Business School with the coaching and role playing expertise of "The Experience Lab" a team of improvisation actors. By employing a distinctive experiential approach, participants will gain practical insight into how to manage their negotiations more effectively and avoid pitfalls. This knowledge will be brought to life through case studies, simulations, role plays and coaching. The program culminates in a substantial negotiation simulation in which “The Experience Lab” team will challenge, guide and coach the participants to develop and improve their practical skills.

Who Will Benefit

This program is highly beneficial for those whose roles involve negotiation and achieving the agreement of others, whether in formal negotiation settings such as procurement or enterprise bargaining, or in less formal settings such as leading an organisational change process or working in dynamic teams.
