Institute for Conflict Management
All of us negotiate every day. From the moment we wake up until we close our eyes at night, we interact with others to get things done. For many of us, the hardest negotiations involve conflict. Whether we fight back, shut down, or avoid conflict altogether, breakdowns with other people rarely bring out our best skills or better nature. The most important negotiations, and the ones that determine the quality of our lives, are those we have with ourselves. Yet few of us are masters of the "negotiation within".
This workshop can help.
Beyond Yes is a method of negotiating effectively with yourself, in order to negotiate successfully with other people. The seven-step process is based on over a dozen years of teaching negotiation at Harvard Law School and training thousands of people around the world to transform conflicts. This professional training and personal journey explores the interplay between best practices of negotiation and insights of the great wisdom traditions, moving you from competence toward mastery. From working well with clients and colleagues to living well with your family and friends, this program gives you the insights and skills you need to turn stressful situations into success and satisfaction.
Come hear for yourself why Douglas Stone, co-author of business bestseller Difficult Conversations, says, "If Beyond Yes isn't the next big thing, I don't know what is."
