"Learn how to make the difference in dealing with conflicts and negotiating good outcomes". Conflicts are a fact of life since we all have different values, needs, interests and goals. And as our world becomes increasingly interdependent, more and more people bump into one another more and more often. Organizations require professionals to deal with their counterparts in countries with different economic, cultural, legal and political environments. Nobody is a successful problem solver by nature. The good thing is that you can improve your skills by training with proven methods and techniques.Schedule: Monday - Friday, 9:00 - 14:00

Andreas, Sweden - Communication, Negotiation and Conflict Management
„European Summer School helped me discover the best parts of Prague. The course was great, I learned many new things I will apply in both my studies as well my future life. The free time activities were also great with a combination of sightseeing and social events. I study at university, but European Summer School is the best school I went to so far. I will always remember my time in Prague thanks to the dedicated teachers, staff and classmates.“
