Communication, Negotiation and Conflict Management (on campus)
"Learn how to make the difference in dealing with conflicts and negotiating good outcomes".
Conflicts are a fact of life since we all have different values, needs, interests and goals. And as our world becomes increasingly interdependent, more and more people bump into one another more and more often. Organizations require professionals to deal with their counterparts in countries with different economic, cultural, legal and political environments. Nobody is a successful problem solver by nature. The good thing is that you can improve your skills by training with proven methods and techniques.
In this course you will learn how to make the difference in dealing with conflict and negotiating good outcomes. You will gain the capability to solve situations where different values, needs, interests and goals clash, which is important more than ever – both in professional and personal life. You will also learn how to effectively mediate conflict, often with intercultural context, using proven and engaging methods and techniques.
