The series will consist of four one-and-a-half day programs throughout the year at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago.

Executive Decision Making & Negotiations
Improve your personal effectiveness and increase the productivity of your association by drawing on the latest research in the psychology of judgment, combined with time-tested theories of negotiation and decision making. Develop consistently effective strategies and systematic approaches to negotiations and decision making that will dramatically improve your personal effectiveness and the productivity of your association.

  • Identify negotiating and decision-making styles that will help you identify unique strengths and weaknesses
  • Measure interests, find beneficial trades and maximize the outcome in a multiple-issue negotiation
  • Defend interests in confrontational negotiations and identify the key characteristics of a good agreement
  • Recognize and overcome flaws in your negotiation and decision-making processes
  • Develop frameworks for making sound decisions and how to analyze situations
  • Anticipate and defend against common influence tactics
