Cracking the code: Negotiation strategies for creative collaboration

We are constantly negotiating with others. While you may not be negotiating the merger or acquisition of a business, or the release of hostages from enemy territory, how you and your partner feel about the final negotiated agreement is pivotal to your relationship, happiness, peace of mind and productivity.

If the following scenarios describe you then this course is just what you need!

  • Do you associate negotiation with confrontation?

  • Do those voices inside your head scream, “why can’t you just be happy with what you have”?

  • Are you FRUSTRATED because you know you could be making more money in your job or business, but you don’t know how to ask for more?

  • Do you believe you should never make the first offer, that negotiating in your industry is unique, or that you must always hold your cards close to your chest? 

Very few of us are born good negotiators. However, it is one of those skills you can master if you have the desire to improve. This course will provide students with the opportunity to step back and rethink their current approach to negotiation in the context of long-term relationships, win-win strategies and creative collaborations.

The truth is you cannot learn how to become a more effective negotiator by reading a book. You need to practice, receive feedback and then apply what you learned.


A course based on scientific principles means you’re getting a much more comprehensive understanding of human behaviour than relying on your dad’s advice, your mom’s perspective or your boss’s favourite negotiation strategies. And that matters because memory is selective; they are likely telling you about their negotiation wins, but what about their losses? 

We humans tend to respond to certain things in predictable ways. And that is a good thing!  When you understand human behaviour and learn how to crack the code,  you become much more effective at creating win-win collaborations and successful negotiations.
