This intensive skill-building workshop on multiparty negotiation and conflict resolution (NCR) aims to help participants manage complex multi-stakeholder negotiations; mediate public disputes; design consensus-building procedures; examine cross-cultural differences and ethical dilemmas; and sustain cooperative relationships. The emphasis is on the NCR challenges faced by managers in the public and nonprofit sectors. Small groups will do intensive exercises, and participants will be provided with guided, repeated practice and feedback.
Prerequisite: MLD-220M, MLD-222M, MLD-223, or MLD-224. MLD-280 is offered in an intensive format in January. MLD-280 and HLS 2195 (the HLS Negotiation Workshop), may not both be taken for credit.
Students must be prepared to attend class daily from approximately 8 a.m. - 9 p.m., and should plan their workload accordingly. Please see syllabus for schedule details.
