North Professional Development Workshop October 2021


Negotiation - Explore the 3rd Alternative!  This workshop includes a 1-hour presentation by IIL and then a panel discussion by professionals with negotiating experience.


In “hard” negotiation, negotiators tend to lock themselves into positions. There is a successive taking and giving up, with more attention paid to the positions than the outcome itself. This creates a win/lose scenario. “Soft” negotiation, on the other hand, emphasizes maintaining the relationship between the two parties over achieving victory over the other. This also creates a win/lose scenario.

In the presentation, we will explore Stephen Covey’s “3rd Alternative,” which goes beyond simply unmasking the needs of the other party to create a win/win outcome; it involves a paradigm shift wherein opposing parties use synergy to transcend a conflict and create something new.

Learning Objectives:

After the presentation and panel discussion, learners will be able to:

  • Explain various ways to enhance self-awareness
  • Recognize the importance of deliberately seeking out views different from your own
  • Articulate the difference between two- and three-alternative thinking
  • Define the concept of synergy with regard to relationship building
  • List the four steps to creating synergy
