Stanford Offers New Online Course: Negotiation and How to Get (More of) What You Want
STANFORD, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
You spend a significant part of your day negotiating, whether you're
always aware of it or not. Negotiating effectively helps you reach
agreements, achieve objectives, strengthen your relationships, and
ultimately be more productive. Entrepreneurs not only need strong
analytic skills to develop the best solutions to problems, but they need
negotiation know-how to implement those solutions and bring them to
market. As a result, the online Stanford Certificate in Innovation and
Entrepreneurship program has launched a new course titled Negotiation:
How to Get (More of) What You Want.
The course delivers valuable insight into how to be a more effective
negotiator and secure more of what you want in life. Through lectures,
vignettes, and hands-on exercises, participants will understand the
components of negotiation and practice negotiation skills.
Margaret Neale, the Adams Distinguished Professor of Management, teaches
the new Negotiation course. A senior faculty member at the
Graduate School of Business and an expert in negotiation and team
building skills, Neale's research and teaching has centered on
bargaining, distributed work groups, team composition, learning, and
performance. She is the author of more than 70 articles on these topics
and is a coauthor of three books. Her online Negotiation course
will teach participants to:
Evaluate costs and benefits of different actions and how to manage the
Enhance the ability to understand and predict the behavior of
individuals in competitive situations
