Negotiation skills

Wed 6 Mar 2024


Negotiation is a life skill with which you can achieve your own desirable outcomes but also help others achieve theirs - a ‘win/win’. Good negotiation skills could help you in situations such as setting up a research collaboration that works for everyone through to dealing with a new job offer.

This workshop covers the fundamental aspects of understanding how to negotiate so that by the end you will be able to take part in a group negotiation, giving you experience of translating the theory into practice.

It focusses on using a principled argument, which is more likely to achieve results that meet the needs of all the parties in the negotiation, and lead to good ongoing relationships, and trust.

Course content:

  • What is negotiation and why is it important
  • Principled negotiation techniques
  • Active listening
  • Group negotiation exercise involving all participants
Target audience

All PhDs
