Negotiating for Leadership is an intense two-day executive education program offered by the Dubai School of Government (DSG) in association with Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. The program is designed to assist women in senior positions in developing the negotiation strategies necessary to lead effectively in today’s world.
The program is highly integrative. Covering both general as well as gender- and culture-specific strategies, the program will empower you to develop your negotiation skills, become a more successful decision maker, and systematically improve your effectiveness as a woman leader.
The program is highly interactive. Building on the Harvard case methodology, Negotiating for Leadership utilizes a unique experimental approach to leadership development. As a participant, you are asked to think of the classroom as a laboratory where you can learn about leadership challenges in organizations and try out strategies that would be too risky to experiment with in your professional life.
The program is highly selective. You will have the opportunity to be a part of a very unique group of senior women leaders from throughout the Arab world representing the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
Negotiating for Leadership is co-hosted by the Women and Public Policy Program (Harvard Kennedy School) and the Gender and Public Policy Program (Dubai School of Government).
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate from the Harvard Kennedy School.
