Communication skills in negotiating and managing high-pressure situations become more and more important in the transition from student to career professional. But where do you go to prepare for the challenges of entering the world of work and dealing with challenging people or circumstances?  

This 3-hour workshop presented by the Centre for Workplace Leadership in the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Melbourne will support graduate students in developing effective ways of managing negotiation and conflict. Through a combination of facilitated class discussions and experiential exercises, participants will be introduced to the following:

  • Defining features of different types of negotiation and conflict

  • Understanding and communicating underlying positions and interests in a negotiation or conflict

  • Contextualisation of negotiation styles through self-assessment

  • How to adapt and apply negotiation styles to different situations

No matter your background or experience level, this workshop will help graduate students assess their skill level and practice and develop the skills they need.

Limited to 20 places. Only $25 for graduate students. 

Afternoon tea and refreshments will be provided.
