Fundamental Negotiation Skills (online workshop)

Negotiations are ubiquitous. People negotiate in their jobs, in politics, in the sports sector, in economy and at international diplomatic tables. You might personally negotiate your first salary soon. And if you are not one of the (un-)lucky ones that have the honor to negotiate their salary, you will likely negotiate about the price for a car, on a flea market, about a mobile phone contract or together with your partner on how to spend your free time together.

Irrespective of the specific content of a negotiation, this online workshop will teach you fundamental strategies and skills for success at the bargaining table. In several hands-on and applied negotiation tasks, you will have the opportunity to try out new techniques and to extend your personal negotiation skill set.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Preparation of a negotiation
  • The first offer: When and how to start?
  • Strategies: Which concessions do I make; how do I react toward my opponent?
  • Nonverbal aspects and how they influence your and your counterpart's thinking and decisions
  • Deal-making: How to increase your shared pie and how to claim the largest slice.

This workshop is offered as a cooperation between GradUS and the Promotionsberatungsstelle der htw saar in the framework of their joint "GraduSaar" scheme.
