This exciting new workshop will teach participants how to skillfully manage a wide range of emotions to communicate more effectively. The negotiation skills taught in this course center on preventing automatic emotional responses which can cause an acute breakdown in communication.
Participants will begin by learning about each of the six main universal emotions, such as sadness, anger, fear, happiness, disgust and surprise. Evolutionary science will be used to offer a primer of how these emotions came about and how they evolved to help humans survive and procreate.
The next module involves the physiological and psychological sensations of each emotion. Participants will learn about how each emotion affects their body and mind so that they can become aware sooner when the emotion arises.
The third part of the workshop involves using personal history to create a unique emotional profile. This will include how each person historically reacts to these emotions and any events or circumstances in their early or present life that influence these reactions.
Finally, participants will have a chance to put everything they learned together and apply it to a negation scenario where the other party is purposely triggering intense emotional responses. The goal of the practice is to identify which emotion each person is feeling, then before acting on it automatically, considering the whole situation at hand.
Science has shown that while experiencing a certain emotion, people can only remember information related to that particular emotion. For example, someone who is angry or irritable will only notice past memories and present circumstances that promote the narrowed view of anger. In a negotiation, this can obscure the bigger picture and cause the person to miss critical details that would improve his or her chances for a favorable outcome. The workshop will provide the education, skills and training to use emotions skillfully to negotiate better and to relate to others more positively during the process.
