Enjoy our video tips to better negotiate, engage and collaborate!
Negotiation happens in everyone’s life and everyone negotiates everyday - even without realizing it. We all use negotiation for getting what we want from others. In business and government, at work or at home, people reach decisions, make deals and resolve disputes through negotiation.
Manager and executives negotiate with people inside and outside their organizations. Executives negotiate the performance and terms of contracts, plan joint ventures and strategic alliances with other companies, and settle international investments. Managers deal with complex business issues, develop strategic planning, and settle disputes through negotiation.
Supervisors, managers and executives negotiate with subordinates to agree on performance goals. Employees negotiate to work together to perform tasks and achieve goals.
Employees deal with mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances, global competition, new technologies, new work systems, and organizational changes that affect labor-management relations and its negotiation processes.
Lawyers close deals and settle lawsuits, local governments deal with strikes and rallies, and nations accord peace, international aid, trade agreements and investments ventures.

We all know that conflict is a growing industry and today’s organizations are experiencing changes; different cultural backgrounds of the workforce are more diverse than they have ever been before and more people want to participate in decisions that affect them. The potential for conflict increases, requiring even more attention to how we deal with differences and how people work better together.
Learning negotiation and conflict management skills enable people and organizations assess organizational and social concerns, clarify vision and objectives, choose wise courses of action, and assume responsibility for the results.
Negotiation and conflict management skills are strategies to constructively deal with conflict and differences. The ability to deal with conflict in a constructive manner not only adds value to people and organizations, but also positively affects the growth and development of societies.

Organizations are more than a conglomerate of structures, procedures, policies, resources, services, products, facilities, production and transformation. Organizations are the sum of complex behaviors of people, beliefs, and values.
Organizational Effectiveness is based on a positive working culture grounded on positive working relationships. A positive working culture creates a place where people want to work and do their best while inspiring others. Structures, procedures and rewards systems also support the culture in place and can shape working relationships. At the core, positive working relationships are based on and reflected by human interaction and how we treat each other when facing challenges, differences, problems, tensions, changes, resistance and disputes.
How these challenges and differences are managed determines whether the experience is a risk or an opportunity. We believe that challenges, differences and conflicts are potential opportunities for learning, growth and development.
Great organizations need to develop positive working environments, collaborative and conflict competence cultures where issues and concerns can be raised by everyone and dealt with responsibly and respectfully. If the organizational culture is to listen and encourage inquiry and input, it will lead to organizational commitment, effectiveness and efficiency.
