Negotiation is the art of reaching an agreement where all parties benefit. In order to avoid the negative outcomes of unresolved or badly resolved conflict, it is important for management to develop conflict management skills. In this way, rather than conflict being a negative occurrence, it can be harnessed to strengthen an organisation.
This course provides the essential skills needed to arrive at a win-win situation in the negotiation process. The content will broaden your understanding of conflict and its causes, as well as negotiation and negotiation principles. You will be equipped with tools and techniques to apply the negotiation process according to established terms and styles.
