Public Sector and Diplomatic Training

We facilitate consensus-based management, which means negotiation, which means hard work demanding careful analytical, interpersonal and communication preparation and tailored delivery. Cooperation is created, and requires good negotiation. Even the best factual and rational arguments fail if they do not address existential and often hidden priorities. Alone and isolated, you lose. Because the quality of implementation is the real stress test, good negotiation mitigates multiple risks and increases incentives to perform and deliver.   


Highly practical, tailor-made for public sector and diplomatic professionals put participants in bilateral and multiparty situations. Together we hone analytical, interpersonal tactics, techniques and skills using a no-nonsense interactive “learning by doing” methodology which blends short conceptual presentations, simulation role plays and interactive personalized debriefings with video feedback. For the real world. Online and/or in-person.
