Detailed Programme

This programme goes well beyond traditional training in negotiation. The primary focus is on the beliefs, processes and tactics at the negotiation table - where the ‘magic’ happens. The theories and models are applied in practice. Role plays, real-life scenarios and expert feedback help you integrate new learning into your mindset and skills set when approaching negotiation situations.

The programme ‘Negotiating to Create Value’ has 5 modules. These modules consist of:

Module 1: Claiming your share

  • What do I want to get out of the negotiation?
  • Formulating your best alternative.

Module 2: Unlocking underlying interests

  • What are the differences between positions and interests?
  • Asking the right questions.

Module 3: Thinking out-of-the-box

  • How to create value for both parties?
  • The power of emotions. 

Module 4: How to shape negotiations strategy

  • What are 3D negotiations?
  • How to handle multi-party negotiations.

Module 5: Your personal negotiation style

  • What are my strengths?
  • How to tackle your weak spots.

  1. What is... your reflected best self?

    We often get the advice to just be ourselves. However, it requires a large amount of self-knowledge to know who you are authentically. Your reflected best self is your individual mental picture of the qualities and characteristics that are on display when you are at your best. But how do you construct this mental picture? And what are the trigger events that contain new pieces of information to add to the picture? Professor and Dean Marion Debruyne explains.
  2. What is... the competency trap?

    Is it better to invest in further developing and refining your strengths, or should you go for the tough track and overcome your weaknesses? Most of us prefer the former. Because it feels so much better to further develop what you are already good at. But by overinvesting in our strengths, we also take less time to learn other important new skills. Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir explains how to overcome this so-called competency trap.
