Global and Multicultural Negotiation
The Handbook of Global and Multicultural Negotiation is a comprehensive resource that offers a wealth of in-depth advice and proven strategies for conducting effective cross-cultural negotiations. Written for people who must negotiate agreements with people from different cultural backgrounds, the book is based on extensive research and the direct experiences of Christopher W. Moore and Peter J. Woodrow--two experts on international negotiation and conflict resolution who have worked in more than sixty countries and with multiple local cultures around the world.
Throughout the book, the authors focus on cross-cultural communication, problem solving, and negotiations. To begin, Moore and Woodrow reveal how people from diverse cultures relate to one another in ways that may hinder effective problem solving, negotiations, or dispute resolution. Next, the authors lay the groundwork for understanding both culture and negotiation and how they interact. The book goes on to provide a detailed process guide for negotiations across cultures and presents strategies for the various phases of the negotiation process. The authors describe how to approach the beginning stage of talks, gain an understanding of issues and interests, generate options, and ultimately reach and implement sustainable agreements--all through a cultural lens. Along the way, they also describe common strategies used by members of diverse cultures and how to respond to them. In addition, this important book is filled with illustrative stories and examples from a variety of multicultural business, diplomatic, development, employment, and interpersonal negotiations.
Step-by-step, the authors show how to become a culturally sensitive problem solver by gaining insights, knowledge, and skills that can transform the dynamics of intercultural interactions, build better relationships, and reach agreements with greater benefits for all concerned.
