Negotiation training for public policy students, professionals and non-profit leaders enhances negotiation awareness, improves preparation and sharpens skills 'at the table' . NPS provides training ranging from 1-day sessions on negotiation basics to capacity building programmes targeting negotiations teams or individuals from across government agencies.
Public sector and non-profit negotiators nearly always face multiple stakeholders, coalition dynamics and a variety of internal-external bargaining tables. Off-the-shelf training modules do not do justice to this complexity. Both entry-level and advanced negotiation training is best customised to the specific professional context and process, substance and relationship challenges faced by teams and individual staff members.
Tailor-made and confidentially produced case studies and simulations can significantly enhance long-term learning effects from training. They help to embed basic negotiation principles and common pitfalls across teams, departments and even entire agencies.
