GETTING YOUR WAY (WITHOUT BEING A JERK)
Additional Information: Who’s the jerk? Me. You. Everyone. Getting past differing opinions and competing self-interest is hard. It seems odd that it doesn’t come naturally. I learned the hard way. Interpersonal skills can make or break collaboration, and as much as we might want it to be true, stating the facts does not always win people over.
We’ll talk about the heavy topics of tribalism and cognitive biases in a lighthearted way. Walk with me through my missteps in common human behaviors that undermine collaboration. We’ll dive into 3 negotiation strategies to use to improve collaboration. You’ll leave with general theory, memorable examples and specific suggestions to shift your thinking and approach to working more effectively with people.
Psychology 1001 not required.
