Assessment: Negotiating Style Profile

Everybody negotiates. And whether people are striving to hit their monthly sales quota, campaigning for a deadline extension, or pitching ideas to a team, the same principles apply. There’s more to effective negotiating than the outcome alone. In fact, building
productive relationships is equally important. Skillful negotiators know this is the key to their success – and it’s what sets them apart from the rest.

Each participant in this course will receive a personalized Negotiating Style Profile, which offers a simple framework for determining one’s preference for one of five negotiating styles: Defeating, Accommodating, Collaborating, Withdrawing, or Compromising.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn five styles of negotiating
  • Identify your personal negotiating style
  • Learn how one’s negotiating style is perceived by others
  • Develop an action plan to improve negotiating-style strengths

Program Length: 90 minutes
Assessment: What’s My Learning Style? Assessment

Every person uses a preferred personal learning style during the learning process, whether or not they are conscious of it. Some people learn best in a group, while others prefer to learn independently. Some approach learning with enthusiasm; some require time for reflection. There isn’t one “correct” learning style but building awareness of your own learning preferences can help develop the ability to function in a variety of different learning situations.

During this program, participants will:

  • Identify a preference for one of 4 learning styles
  • Recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each learning style
  • Discover how to approach all types of learning in a way that is comfortable
  • Create a plan to branch out of the “style comfort zone”

Most people are not overtly prejudiced and, if asked, would claim in all sincerity that they believe everyone is equal. However, despite people’s good intentions, unconscious bias shows itself in several subtle ways. Bias becomes unproductive when we allow it to control our decision making without questioning our assumptions, or to impact our behavior towards others.

Topics addressed include:

  • How to understand the subtle ways that bias occurs
  • Identifying instances of devaluing others through small, subconscious behaviors and micro-inequities
  • How to establish a framework to increase inclusion at the organizational level
  • Recognizing different ways of conveying respect
  • How to lead by example and be part of the solution
