Negotiations and Influence in an Asian Context - INDIA (Melbourne), Citadines on Bourke Melbourne, Monday, 18. November 2019

Collaborate. Negotiate. Resolve conflict. Optimise stakholder alignment.
If you are conducting negotiations with Indian counterparts, a strong understanding of how process, commercial issues and culture impacts negotiation styles is critical. • What processes may be adopted to achieve mutual gains with an Indian counterpart in a negotiation? • How do you plan for and respond to lengthy multi-stage negotiations with Indian counterparts? • How does culture affect commercial outcomes in a negotiation with Indian counterparts? 
The ApproachThis practical, participatory one-day program combines global perspectives on cross-cultural negotiation with Australian executive insights and reflections from Indian counterparts. It incorporates the Consensus Building Institute’s world-leading Mutual Gains Approach, built in partnership with faculty from Harvard and MIT, which utilises a practical four-step methodology for improving negotiation results in Indian contexts:
1. Prepare – Estimate your Best Alternative to Negotiated Agreement (BATNA) and identify the interests of your Indian counterparts
2. Create Value – Invent without committing. Float options that consider the differences between parties. 
3. Distribute Value – Behave in ways that build trust. Find objective values both parties can use to justify mutually beneficial sharing of the value created. 
4. Follow Through – Specify mechanisms to deal with predictable surprises. Agree on monitoring arrangements, including metrics.
