Exploring the 3rd Alternative in Negotiation

With Christa Kirby

About the Webinar

In “hard” negotiation, negotiators tend to lock themselves into positions. There is a successive taking and giving up, with more attention paid to the positions than the outcome itself. This creates a win/lose scenario.

“Soft” negotiation, on the other hand, emphasizes maintaining the relationship between the two parties over achieving victory over the other. This also creates a win/lose scenario.

This webinar explores Stephen Covey’s “3rd Alternative,” which goes beyond simply unmasking the needs of the other party to create a win/win outcome; it involves a paradigm shift wherein opposing parties use synergy to transcend a conflict and create something new.
