Roleplay using Negotiation War Gaming
One of the most effective ways to get emotionally and cognitively ready for important talks, Prof. Freeman roleplays with his client(s) so they experience the emotional reality of the situation. Roleplaying can complement basic negotiation preparation coaching.
Work out what to say, how to say it, and what not say.
Clients particularly prize Prof. Freeman’s ability to translate what they want to say into language that helps them win warmly. While many often say, “let me write down what you just said!”, Prof. Freeman uses thoughtful language not as a script but a model to help client’s work out what they want to say or write in their own words. Doing that can equip them with confidence before key talks.
Pre-mortem and Post-mortem reviews.
It’s a competitive advantage to think about your negotiation outcome before and after you decide whether to say ‘yes.’ Prof. Freeman is highly experienced working with leaders to assess their choices before they make them so they can decide whether it’s wise to ‘get to yes’ or wiser to walk away. He’s also highly experienced at process and outcome review, helping leaders learn and build their abilities for future talks…and know better how to implement the deals they reach.
