Over the years thousands of professionals have participated in negotiation programs at the Program on Negotiation (PON) at Harvard Law School. And after a few months or years of putting their negotiation skills and techniques to work, participants inevitably ask us, what’s next?

What can you expect from the Harvard Negotiation Master Class negotiation training?

If you are selected to participate, you’ll take part in small learning groups and dynamic exercises with two-way feedback. You’ll work closely with faculty members to develop a strategy that addresses your personal negotiation challenges, and take part in intensive simulations. And more than that, you’ll have the rare opportunity to step away from your day-to-day responsibilities to

  • Identify and eliminate your weaknesses
  • Learn how to leverage your skills in new ways
  • Become expert at resolving and defusing conflict anywhere
  • Develop skills necessary for C-suite and upper management
  • Master new strategies, developed by your world-renowned instructors, that most negotiators have never heard of

Renowned academics and dealmakers are your instructors
