The session was conducted on the significance and the role of negotiations in one’s personal as well as professional life. The criticality of negotiation was very well expressed through the session. The negotiation style plays an important role in corporates. The guest highlighted Not to offer anything exceptionally high as it would again create a problem among the existing employees. Ensuring one is little tactful and flash one’s trillion dollar smile. Do not indulge in annoying the other party. Negotiation is also important when one is dealing with vendors. An organization needs money to survive, managers have to take responsibility of the employees as well. The organisation can’t afford to spend money as it is. A single penny saved will help the managers and the organization later. The persons dealing with the external parties must be a good negotiator else one will end up paying more amount than required. Conflict must be avoided at the work place as it only leads to negativity all around. Negotiations help to reduce conflicts at the work place. Conflicts arise when individuals are too rigid and are just not willing to compromise with each other. Negotiations help in finding an alternative which benefits all.

Several parameters responsible for effective negotiation were made interesting by different classroom activities. Hereinafter session was closed by a question and answer which elucidated qualms of students.
