Woman in Negotiation: Masterclass

Course outline:

To understand how neuroscience underpins our behaviours and the impact gender has on our negotiations.  The core of our training is focused on developing a framework and strategies to manage these interactions so maximising outcomes – every interaction causes a reaction.

Course benefits:

  • Understanding our unique physiology, both male and female, to successfully interact and build trusting and supportive relationships (internally and externally).

  • Learning how to maximise your innate strengths and develop skills to reduce weaknesses.

  • Understand the science of gender to eradicate the hearsay and stereotypes.

  • Negotiate more effectively with all genders.

  • Gain a new perspective on negotiation.


Upcoming event:

No events currently scheduled

Learning objectives:

  • To understand not only who the other party is but to also truly understand who we are in order to maximise outcomes.

Neuroscience tips:

Our amygdala (primitive emotional centre) Is more sensitive and primed to react more readily in response to negative emotion – so forming stronger emotional recall of negative events.  Don’t keep replaying those negative scenarios/emotions. By doing this you are reinforcing negative neural pathways, instead recall and replay success stories.  Remind yourself on a regular basis of what you have achieved, individually and as a team.  Whenever you have an opportunity start with ‘what went well’ not ‘why did that go wrong’.

Our ACC (anterior cingulate cortex) is more commonly known as our ‘worry centre’ which recognises error.  This is larger in women.  Eliminate the worry by researching and role playing (if possible).  Ask yourself what the top 3 dreaded questions may be in your interview and prepare for every scenario. 

Every interaction causes a reaction, both chemical and emotional.

Taking account of any diversity in an interaction rather than assuming ‘one approach fits all’ is key to achieving effective negotiation communication and outcomes.

Using the latest neuroscience research we will help you understand the neurochemistry behind behaviours – both yours and others - so enabling you to build stronger relationships, greater trust and successful outcomes.
