Across the Pond & Beyond:  Cross-cultural Negotiations

International negotiation has multiple complexities working with both the environmental and immediate contexts affecting the negotiator and the negotiation process. Effective international negotiators understand and manage these contexts.
By conceptualizing culture and focusing on its influences, the negotiator can see culture’s effect on the outcomes, the process, the individual cognition and ethics. With an awareness and understanding of culture’s influence, a negotiator can then utilize 8 different culturally responsive negotiation strategies in their future negotiations.
This interactive session provides professionals with an in-depth under-standing of how culture affects negotiation through the use of case studies and group work; as well as why it is important to take cultural influence into consideration before beginning to negotiate.
Attendee Outcomes
  • Understand culture’s effect on negotiation and the individual negotiators.
  • Become knowledgeable on the 8 culturally responsive strategies and how to use them.
  • Effectively take this newly found knowledge into their next international negotiation for a more successful and efficient outcome.
