Kursa apraksts: This course is designed to help you understand the forces that limit innovation, identify those barriers in your own business culture, and break free of them to realize the full value of your imagination.

Kursa nosaukums: Psychologie de la négociation
Kursa sākums: 2019.gada 3.jūnijs
Kursa ilgums: 8 nedēļas
Kursa piedāvātājs: Université catholique de Louvain
Kursa apraksts: La négociation traverse toutes les dimensions de la vie humaine. Nous négocions tous les jours, dans toutes les sphères de notre existence: au travail, avec la famille, les amis… Dès qu’il s’agit de partager des biens matériels mais aussi de résoudre une divergence d’intérêts, de concilier différentes envies, rêves, goûts, couleurs…
Ce cours s’éloigne de l’approche classique des négociations et tente de rendre compte des phénomènes psychologiques à la base du comportement. L’approche poursuivie sera descriptive plutôt que prescriptive. Les êtres humains poursuivent des motivations, ont des attentes, des préjugés, des biais et des émotions. Ils analysent l’information qui leur est soumise et prennent des décisions à travers le spectre de leurs propres limites cognitives. Leurs actions fluctuent en fonction de la situation ou de leur personnalité. Toutes ces variables influencent non seulement le comportement des personnes mais, plus fondamentalement, elles modifient la dynamique même de résolution des divergences. Ce cours mettra en évidence ces variables multiples et offrira aux étudiants une compréhension fine et détaillée des processus psychologiques qui entrent en jeu avant, pendant et après toute négociation.
Pendant ce cours vous apprendrez à :
  • Maîtriser les connaissances qui permettent d’expliquer et de comprendre le comportement des individus lorsque ceux-ci sont amenés à gérer leurs divergences et conflits au travers de la technique des négociations
  • Analyser, critiquer et modéliser les situations de divergences et de négociations
  • Adopter une posture critique vis-à-vis de soi-même et d’autrui en négociation.

Kursa piedāvātājs:  Leiden University, Netherlands
Kursa apraksts: This is the second course in Leiden University’s new series on International Law in Action which provides an insider perspective into the work of international criminal courts and tribunals. You will learn about the investigation and prosecution of international crimes in The Hague.
