Negotiation and Conflict Management in Projects


Negotiation and conflict resolution are integral parts of daily life and working with people. Managers need the skill to handle people problems before they affect performance whether the problems are within the team or with clients, customers, and stakeholders. This course covers the foundations of negotiation, negotiation strategy including planning and framing and how to recognize and prepare for the phases of a negotiation.
Another aspect of working with people is how to deal with the inevitable conflicts that may arise. Managers are called upon to resolve conflicts not only within their teams but also with clients, customers, and other stakeholders. This course will also cover constructive and destructive conflict.
