Experiences of past course participants

2015 course participants said:
"The course has armed me with various ways of looking at issues. As a legal practitioner, i was trained to look
at issues from the adversarial point of view win-lose. However, this course has taught me that compromise in
certain circumstances is key to international business, especially where long term and harmonious relationship
is contemplated."

The most important things you learnt during this course:
"The ability to listen to others' perspectives, the ability to concede (even though it's hard to do so), the ability to
wear the cloak of 'integration' when dealing with others, and so on."
What were the strengths of the CEU summer course?
"The diversity of our class. People bringing experiences from different cultures and countries. The diversity of
professions, we heard from different perspectives, and the given examples were very enriching."

"It helped me to relate my traditional understanding of negotiation to modern academic theories of Negotiation.
The Head office Lease activity was very interesting and brought practicality into the course learning. It also
creates Negotiation awareness of my actions whenever I am in conversation with people, the first question
that comes to my mind is " Is this a Negotiation?"; Can I make this conversation a Negotiation Activity? I have
become very conscious of seeing my daily conversations with family and friends as Negotiation or somehow
trying to convert it to Negotiation using mostly the Integrative Approach."
