This course cover the four fundamental negotiating principles through an interactive mix of discussion, case studies, and role plays. Bankers learn to:

  • Separate the people from the problem, so the Clients don’t become adversaries.
  • Focus on interests not positions, so they can understand and satisfy the real interests of the clients.
  • Create options for mutual gain, so new solutions can improve outcomes for both sides.
