To be an effective negotiator requires self-awareness of one’s own innate behavior in a negotiation and the ability to knowledgeably and strategically select from a range of negotiation strategies the one that best fits the situation. Negotiation is a common element of many engineering jobs, with obvious applications to tasks like awarding and managing construction contracts and less obvious applications to tasks like overseeing work crews promoting design concepts within your team.

However, many engineers never seek out negotiation training and are unaware of how much negotiation training can help their careers. This is unfortunate because there are many characteristic behaviors of being a good engineer that run counter to being an effective negotiator. Drawing upon 25 years of experience working for engineering consulting companies, this course focuses on the special needs of engineers by identifying the types of engineering behaviors that are important to recognize in a negotiation and then presenting the spectrum of available negotiation strategies and tactics. A focus is maintained on explaining where engineers in particular can get tripped up if they are not self-aware and explicitly strategic in implementation.

This course is provided in a concise format that provides the essential concepts needed to begin approaching negotiations in a more mindful and strategic manner. References are provided for further study.

This course is beneficial to anyone seeking to improve their communications with others in ways that enhance their ability to gain durable agreement. It provides a quick introduction to the commonly accepted core knowledge concepts in the field of negotiation with an experienced-based inclusion of the special negotiation needs of engineers.
