Course Focus

Being able to negotiate is a practical, everyday skill that is critical for anyone working within an organization. The good news is it’s a skill you can practice and master. Negotiation skills are ones you can use in any context and, once you master the behaviors of effective negotiation, you will use all the time. In this course, developed by Professor Samuel Bacharach, Ph.D. of Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management, you will develop an awareness that every conversation is a negotiation, and you will identify the critical components of effective negotiation.
