Mind the Gap: Negotiation and Conflict
Thu. 25 May 2017, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST
Communication skills become more and more important in the transition from student to career professional. But where do you go to prepare for the challenges of entering the world of work and negotiating or dealing with challenging people?
This 3-hour workshop presented by the Centre for Workplace Leadership in the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Melbourne will support graduate students in developing effective ways of managing negotiation and conflict. Through a combination of facilitated class discussions and experiential exercises, participants will be introduced to the following:
Defining features of different types of negotiation and conflict
Understanding and communicating underlying positions and interests in a negotiation or conflict
Contextualisation of negotiation styles through self-assessment
How to adapt and apply negotiation styles to different situations
No matter your background or experience level, this workshop will help graduate students assess their skill level and practice and develop the skills they need.
Limited to 20 places. Only $25 for graduate students.
Afternoon tea and refreshments will be provided.
It is recommended that participants complete a preliminary diagnostic exercse that will be used during the session, 2 weeks prior to participating. This is easily administered online and will be sent to selected attendees.
