Objectifs pédagogiques

Today’s managers are constantly confronted with intra or inter-company negotiations. And major companies are becoming more and more complicated to understand
knowing that negotiations are omnipresent. There isn’t a day where managers don’t have to negotiate either for signing contracts, managing conflicts or for persuading his teams as well as his hierarchy.
Negotiating is cooperating, making concessions or consensus, managing the balance of power, managing conflicts… These skills are necessary to all managers. Is the negotiator able to understand the interests of the different parties? Is he using all the available elements to make a realistic analysis of the different parties such as relationship network maps? Is he able to efficiently communicate with the other parties while keeping a professional approach? Is he ready to use social psychology or rhetorical and persuasion tools to reach his goals? Has he correctly analyzed the risks and the alternatives? Is he able to go beyond the obstacles of all kinds (strategic,
psychological…) in order to reach win-win negotiation? And finally, when he is about to sign a contract, did he make sure it was fulfilling his interests and that the
engagements taken will have the ability to last in time?
