Cross-cultural negotiating is the process by which two or more parties from different nationalities, geographic regions, and cultural backgrounds come together to resolve issues of importance to them and structure an agreement of mutual benefit. The objective of this seminar is to present a comprehensive and effective framework for successful value-creating negotiations in an international setting. The seminar will also provide practical experience in preparing for and conducting international negotiations. The learning environment is interactive and experiential, and includes open discussion, negotiation simulations, the opportunity to analyze and evaluate disparate outcomes to the simulations, and direct feedback.
