The Negotiation Lab: What It Is, And How You Can Join

Last Friday, I hosted a virtual event to provide information on my upcoming training program for The Negotiation Challenge (TNC). In case you do not know about TNC yet, it is an international negotiation competition held every Spring in Europe.

I am proud to say that my information session was a great success. A total of 48 McGill University students attended, representing every program offered at the Desautels Faculty of Management. 50% of the attendees came from our MBA, 30% from our BCom, and 20% from our Masters of Management.

This meeting was a great opportunity for me to ask questions to students and understand better their expectations for the program. I now have a better idea of how I can best prepare the teams for TNC. It is really exciting to see so much enthusiasm around negotiation.

I decided to give the training program a name: The Negotiation Lab. Here is some information about the Lab, structured around the 5 Ws:

  • Who? Anyone interested in negotiation
  • What? Negotiation simulations & Guest speakers
  • When? Every Friday from 4:00 – 5:30 PM Eastern
  • Where? On Zoom (and sometimes in person)
  • Why? To practice your negotiation skills

You can either participate in the negotiation simulation, or be an observer and watch other people negotiate. Either way, you’ll learn valuable insights and improve your understanding of negotiation. Please fill our the form below to join the session.

If you wish to participate in the simulation, please fill out the form before Wednesday, November 10th at 11:59PM. I will send you your confidential instructions on Thursday morning. You will need around 15 minutes to prepare for the negotiation.
