People have different values, and leaders must have the skills to overcome those differences constructively. How can we develop logical communication skills for negotiation situations at work and in everyday life to find the best solution for both sides?


In this open class, participants will learn about negotiation studies, a methodology for forming desirable agreements through effective negotiations. Negotiation studies are designed so that everyone can logically enhance their abilities without relying on traditional personal qualities and experiences and can explore how to build consensus with others who have different interests and what is required for effective consensus building.


In this open class, we will explain various aspects of negotiation from a practical perspective, based on knowledge from the latest research in social psychology and behavioral science. For example, we will explain why we are quick to concede, why we give easy answers, and how to create good business terms, with the aim of breaking away from common negotiation practices.


In “Leadership and Negotiation” course at Shizenkan, we emphasize active learning. Through mock negotiations based on actual business cases, students will be able to acquire not only theoretical but also practical negotiation skills. By taking this class, students will be able to learn the entire process of negotiation; from preparation, management, and making creative options to managing conflicts.


In this open class, we will also introduce you to some of these skills. If you are interested in acquiring advanced negotiation skills and becoming more confident in all situations, please consider joining us for this opportunity.
