|The WPNP has a limited capability to deploy mobile training teams (MTTs) to conduct negotiation training for leaders of all ranks in operational units and we are eager to do so. If you are interested in coordinating training for your unit, please email us. Because the WPNP is a faculty collaborative effort with no dedicated staff, requests for WPNP training greatly exceed our capacity. We can generally deploy MTTs only during summer months and at other times when planning and executing will not directly conflict with teaching at West Point. Nevertheless, contacting us will give us an opportunity to explore options, including sending a negotiation MTT to your location, training members of your unit at West Point, or providing support in other ways.
We will always tailor negotiation instruction to your unit’s audience and mission. Mobile Training Team programs of instruction (POI) are generally one, two, or three days in length and are highly interactive, involving students in realistic, role-playing exercises. Content can include introduction to principled negotiation, negotiating with difficult counterparts, negotiating in a cross-cultural context, multi-party negotiation, and more. See an example, 3-day POI below.
