Business issues require a balancing act on paradoxical teeter-totters. We need stability to get things done, but global needs are constantly changing. We need to know what we're doing because the wolves of competition are always at the door, but things have never been so complex and uncertain.

In the past, organizations have looked to bureaucratic practices for getting things done. Bosses create rules and make decisions. But in international situations we need more organic, flexible ways of organizing under conditions of change, uncertainty, and diversity. We need to be much better at working things out among ourselves, rather than relying on rules or authorities.

The purpose of this seminar course is to help participants learn how to become great negotiators- who achieve results and build strong working relationships for the future.
