Description: Negotiation strategy is often influenced by the national origin of the participants. In France and Germany, negotiators earn respect by focusing on facts and logic. For the Chinese, negotiation is a drawn out process, with initial meetings focused heavily on collecting information. The art of the deal is almost a national sport in Singapore, where many negotiators rely on tactics ranging from stalling to anger to gain concessions. In contrast, Americans tend to leave no doubt where they stand, in hopes that negotiation will be quick and smooth affairs.

Every negotiator brings different demeanors and tactics to the table, particularly in areas like “approaches to risk, to authority, to the individual, to time, etc.,” say the instructors. In other words, shrewd negotiators can gain an edge by understanding the cultural background of participants. In this course, students will examine the various dimensions of communication, including verbal and non-verbal cues, context, perceptions of fairness, and regional negotiation styles. In addition, students will learn how to act and foster dialogue in bilateral settings.

Review: No reviews.
