This seminar takes place in English and online via BigBlueButton in Stud.IP.

Course Content:
We all negotiate on a daily basis - with our fellow students, colleagues, roommates, family, (business) partners and friends. Whether it is about the distribution of tasks in a study group, the negotiation of contracts with employers and sellers, vacation planning with the partner or the division of household duties in the shared apartment. When you are able to put yourself in the other party's shoes, you will more likely achieve a joint solution that satisfies both sides.

The purpose of this workshop is to highlight the importance of negotiations in the various areas of human interaction and to provide an understanding of the basic negotiation principles and strategies. Each participant has the opportunity to participate in negotiation simulations in order to practice and hone the negotiation strategies and skills.

Learning Goals:

  • Preparation and execution of the negotiation process in a structured manner 
  • The main principles of a constructive negotiation
  • The phases of the negotiation process
  • Body language, active listening and question techniques
  • Proper handling of negotiation tricks, pressure and unfair negotiation tactics used by the other party
  • Understanding the interests, priorities and goals of all parties in order to create win-win situations
  • Application of the taught skills and strategies in practical negotiation role-plays

Study Performance:

Full attendance and active participation, independent involvement in exercises, reflecting on exercises and seminar content, presentation of work results, completion of possible tasks, independent preparation of content and materials (also between the course days)
