International Negotiation Skills

Negotiation is arguably the most challenging discipline in international business life because any negotiation skills that work very well in your home country might have an adverse effect in many other countries. 

To be truly successful around the world, you will have to develop a broad variety of negotiation skills to match the different business cultures you are negotiating in. Across borders, each negotiation partner’s norms of doing business – from trust-building to communication style to decision-making – define the way negotiations are conducted.
