Training methods used & main activities

Designed to accelerate youth workers’ negotiation capabilities, The “Negotiation Lab” through non-formal education methodologies was examined core decision-making challenges, analyze various negotiation scenarios, and provide a range of cooperative negotiation strategies and tools. The training course was anchored on EU model providing participants with a practical insight into the negotiation processes within EU and raise awareness about EU decision making processes.

Outcomes of the activity

In an increasingly interdependent world, negotiation skills have become the inextricable part of young leaders and youth workers both in Europe and the neighboring countries.Participants took part in various real-life based negotiation simulations which will be recorded and analyzed step by step to reach maximum learning. The analysis, discussions, and the flow of learning will be constructed on the spot upon participant’s personal experience. Moreover, equipping youth with this skill contributes greatly to the promotion of participatory policy-making, improving results of deliberative processes, and promoting regional understanding and peace.
But how does one become an effective negotiator? Life and job experience certainly plays a role, but for most, taking their negotiation skills to the next level requires outside training, this was the main outcome from the project.
Designed to accelerate your negotiation capabilities, The “Negotiation Lab” based on Harvard University developed concepts and methodologies will examine core decision-making challenges, analyze various negotiation scenarios, and provide a range of competitive and cooperative negotiation strategies and tools. This program will help young leaders shape important deals, negotiate in uncertain environments, improve working relationships, claim (and create) more value, and resolve seemingly intractable disputes.
