Why attend Negotiation for Executives?

Negotiation is a daily practice within business organizations. We negotiate all the time—with clients and partners, vendors and suppliers, supervisors and colleagues, employees and recruits. Drawing on fundamental negotiation principles, groundbreaking scientific research, and specific real-world examples, this program will help you enhance personal gains in negotiation, while simultaneously sustaining these important relationships.

Successful negotiation requires self-awareness, preparation, and practice. This negotiation training course addresses all three requirements by providing extensive personalized feedback, tips for efficient pre-negotiation planning, and many opportunities to practice and hone your negotiation skills.

In Negotiation for Executives, Professor Jared Curhan presents a comprehensive framework to facilitate efficient and effective negotiation preparation, including scientifically validated survey measures that provide insight into your personality and approach to negotiation. This research-based framework helps negotiators analyze and better understand negotiation situations through perspective-taking, benchmarking, creative problem-solving, and brainstorming.

People who establish great relationships have more people who want to negotiate with them. And the more people want to negotiate with you, the more powerful you become as a negotiator.

Course Experience

Course material is presented in a series of lectures, discussions, and engaging exercises that provide extensive personalized feedback and are designed to teach participants how to leverage their individual traits to achieve success and build lasting relationships at the bargaining table. Prior to the first day of sessions, participants are strongly encouraged to complete a detailed written questionnaire that will better customize the experience for each individual negotiator.

Numerous negotiation simulations will help you practice and hone your new negotiation skills. The simulations are followed up with lively, interactive discussions in which Professor Curhan relates simulation experiences to scientific theory and research.

True to the deeply analytical and quantitative MIT style, the material in this program is based on extensive scientific research by Professor Curhan and his colleagues. Curhan is renowned not only for his engaging and interactive teaching style, but also for his pioneering research on the social and psychological components of negotiation. His research includes topics such as: conceptions of fairness, concern for personal integrity, lasting reputations, company loyalty, preference change during the course of a negotiation, norms for appropriate negotiating behavior, and relational dynamics among negotiators who interact multiple times.

Please note: There is approximately 45 minutes of pre-work including an assignment that should be completed prior to the start of class. It’s important to have this work completed thoughtfully with ample time before class, otherwise you may not be able to participate in the negotiation simulations and you also risk negatively impacting the learning experience for the fellow participant with whom you’ll be partnered.
