“Negotiation” is communicating with other people in order to try to reach agreements about things that we – and they – want and care about. In that sense, we all negotiate every day with the people around us. Whether with our friends, neighbors, teachers, family or colleagues, the way in which we conduct our day-to-day negotiations deeply affects how we relate with others and what we can accomplish. In today’s increasingly interconnected, interdependent and multicultural world, problem-solving negotiation is an essential life skill that should be a part of every student’s education. To this end, PATHWAYS Institute for Negotiation Education works with students, educators and members of associations to develop knowledge and skills in interest-based negotiation and to establish a shared language and framework for creative problem solving based on methodology developed by the Harvard Negotiation Project.
