Winter University Course on Negotiation, Professional Relationship, and Protocols

Winter University Course on Negotiation, Professional Relationship, and Protocols will be held on February 16-22, 2012 in Kosovo. This course will develop your understanding of the principles, strategies, and tactics of effective negotiation and professional relationship management. You will also increase awareness and understanding of ethical principles and stakeholder considerations that influence the choices offered and made in transactions and relationships. You will learn to identify and assess the variables in negotiations, develop sound negotiation planning techniques, develop an understanding of various strategies and tactics to use as you ethically resolve conflicts, transactional and interpersonal differences. Learn how to use that knowledge to execute effective dispute resolutions, and improved competence to manage professional relationships. The course methodology is highly participative and utilizes class discussion, assigned readings, and simulations in one-on-one, fishbowl, and group situations.

  1. I do NOT recommend this opportunity. The same training was offered on this website on November and it was not realized! I was offered a place and by end of November we were told the training will be in December. In December I have been emailing the coordinator for when to get the tickets and in the end I have got no reply. I don't know if other students had more luck, but I do NOT recommend any course offered by this organization!

  2. Thank for the comment! This YATA Kosova training was indeed postponed due to the reasons we have not been informed of. Perhaps they did not get enough funding. However, YATA Kosova has recently emailed us with the announcement about the coming seminar in February, so I hope this time they will keep to their words. If no, please inform us and we will stop cooperating with them. Reliability of information is of outmost importance for us.

  3. Hello!
    Thank you for the comment. So far I have not recieved any email from them about the training, will update you if they will!
