EVALUATE AND NEGOTIATE
Credit points: 15
Professionals need strong analytic skills to evaluate a range of potential solutions to problems. They also need the ability to negotiate support, resources and the terms on which the solution will be acceptable to a range of diverse stakeholders. This requires understanding the causes of behaviour as a result of individual differences. You will explore the values, beliefs and personal attributes which define you as an individual, as well as those that define others in your team, and the stakeholders with whom you must negotiate solutions to the problems you are seeking to solve. In this subject you will gain valuable insights into how to be a more effective communicator and negotiator, within a diverse multidisciplinary, multicultural context.
