Consensus Building and Negotiation for Leaders in Inclusive Market Systems

Event Date: 
Apr 11, 2019 to Apr 12, 2019
1:00 pm to 9:30 pm EDT


In our interconnected world, solving problems demands more of leaders than ever before: innovative stakeholder engagement, conflict resolution, and strategic collaboration. Is your collaboration with strategic partners yielding the best possible outcomes for your organization and the people you serve?

The SEEP Network is partnering with the Consensus Building Institute (CBI) to offer an executive level course on negotiation and consensus building. This course is designed to address the needs of senior leaders in SEEP member organizations and partners at the forefront of organizational strategy, and multi-stakeholder alliances with civil society, government, and the private sector.

Course Summary

Using the principles from the Mutual Gains Approach (MGA) to Negotiation developed by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, this course strengthens capacity to institutionalize learning from collaboration and negotiation experience, and systematically improve individual, team, and organizational performance.

Through contextualized learning, you will reflect on current challenges you and your peers are facing with guidance from CBI experts.

The course is designed to fulfill four strategic objectives:

  1. Identify key consensus building and negotiation challenges for participating leaders and their organizations
  2. Clarify the core principles, strategies, and skills needed for successful negotiation and consensus building
  3. Practice application of negotiation and consensus building skills to participating leaders’ cases and issues
  4. Develop approaches to develop a culture of collaboration to advance organizational priorities

Access the course brochure for workshop topics, training activities and testimonials from past participants.
