Negotiation Fundamentals

Madeleine is tutoring this 2 day professional development course in March and again in August

You will need to book your place via the Victoria University of Wellington website

Victoria Professional and Executive Development

“Negotiation is a skill that can be taught and learnt. Negotiation performance can be demonstrably improved by training interventions. For example, a study of novice negotiators showed that they had different “scripts” about negotiation that made them less effective than trained negotiators . While greater longitudinal studies would be welcome, existing evidence shows that negotiation training is effective in improving participants’ negotiation skills and the quality of negotiation results.”*

* From: “Nine Lessons for Teaching Negotiation Skills” by Melissa Conley Tyler, Senior Fellow, Faculty of Law, University of Melbourne VIC 3010,[email protected] and Naomi Cukier, Trainer, Aticus, Level 1, 9 Queen St, Melbourne VIC 3000, [email protected].
