An ongoing challenge, at work and in our personal lives, involves the resolution of disputes. Despite the importance of resolving conflict in a fair manner, many managers have little training in the process. How do you resolve conflict? There are several approaches. For instance, you can meet with the other party and use the process of negotiation to reach a compromise. You can have a third party (such as a mediator or conciliator) help you and the other party reach an agreement. Or you can have a third party (such as an arbitrator, judge, or tribunal) render a binding decision.

This workshop follows a hands-on approach. You will get the opportunity to negotiate, mediate and/or litigate in every class. The exercises deal with negotiations in several contexts (such as international business, game theory, renting an apartment, returning a rental car, union-management conflict, etc.). The seminar also includes a major bargaining simulation that is designed to train the student to apply the concepts and techniques learned in class.
