Beyond Harvard: Negotiating Win-Win. When They Want You to Lose”

This Master Class is especially designed for up to 25 front-line professionals, all engaged on the front line of persuasion internally with various partners within their organizations and externally with the counterparts in neighboring countries and in international organizations. In a very practical and hands-on session, we would focus on the following objectives, all within the framework of Win-Win Negotiations.


  • This workshop aims first to provide participants with a useful theoretical framework with which to analyze negotiation experience so far, as well as help to introduce tactics and behaviors which are empirically proven to further genuine “Win-Win” outcomes for participants and their clients. These skills will then be further practiced in the context of individual coaching and feedback.
  • Participants can expect to reach a deeper understanding of the importance of negotiation skills to personal and team work success as a key element in their effort to further the long-term interests of the client as a useful complement to traditional analytical and argumentation skills.
  • Participants will also intensively practice proven techniques geared to create negotiation conversations that are truly open and that are most likely to lead to “Win-Win“ outcomes for both parties, especially in the context of dealing with “difficult” clients and opponents.
  • They will be provided with a structured framework or „road map“ to follow during all phases of a negotiations, learning the importance of thorough strategic preparation, open information exchange, skilled bargaining and a close that will ensure appropriate implementation and buy-in.
  • They will come to recognize and evaluate their own natural negotiation style, and thus increase their ability to consciously and systematically alter their behavior in order to improve their own negotiation results.
