Negotiation Skills for Nonprofits & International Organizations
Online Training with Negotiation & Public Service
Nonprofits engage in negotiations with donors and partners several times a day, especially in times of crisis. So how can nonprofits get the best outcomes?
The training is based on the Harvard school of principled negotiation as first introduced over three decades ago by Fisher and Ury’s book “Getting to Yes”. In an introductory webinar session (45 minutes) plus 5 interactive live sessions (2 hours each) you learn about managing substance, relationships and process aspects of negotiation simultaneously. In between sessions, participants deepen their knowledge and skills through readings, inspiring video contents, surveys and virtual negotiation exercises per video, messaging, phone and email.
—¹The program is designed for professionals working for nonprofits and international organizations operating on a global scale. The small group size (max 8) ensures a high degree of interaction and individual trainer to participant feedback.
