This webinar is an introduction to negotiation and agreement-building tools to support your work for freedom, prosperity, and peace from the team at Ayeish, a non profit dedicated to deepening the ability for leaders to transform conflict into solution. Through this webinar, we will explore the fundamentals of how people communicate to get what they want, and how you can respond in such a way that changes the nature of the conversation and achieves the underlying outcomes you seek.  We will outline a tool to identify what actors believe their incentive structures to be, and to address emotional content preventing them from supporting policies or strategies you want.

Ultimately, this is an introduction to tools that will support you in building relationships and agreement in and outside of political power structures, changing political and social incentives for key players.

Ayeish's mission is to deepen the ability of political leaders to transform conflict into solution and connection; Ayeish offers tools to facilitate understanding and solution-finding between parties, rooted in skills to stay connected to self and others in the midst of intensity.
