The ability to negotiate is one of the most important managerial skills. Negotiation is fundamental to social interactions. And business interactions are no exception to this rule.
In this webinar we will examine how culture influences the negotiating process. Negotiation is tricky in and of itself, but cultural barriers add another layer of complexity. Culture has an influence in a variety of ways, from communication tactics and decision-making to the very concept of what a negotiation is. For example, in Asian cultural contexts negotiation is generally about relationship-building. Whereas in the North American context it tends to be more about finalizing a contract. Different approaches to negotiations, if not understood or appreciated beforehand, can place a settlement and a future relationship in jeopardy.
With this in mind, we will explore how culture shapes the negotiating process and the strategies that the negotiators can use to generate successful outcomes.
