Too few professionals master an advanced set of skills in principled negotiation, empathy, and leadership. We of LCM Student Association want to change that by teaching our students how to negotiate integratively and ethically.
Throughout several workshops and case sessions, we elaborate thoroughly on each aspect of these competences. In this way, we can deliver competent and distinguished negotiators with excellent communication skills, who will make the difference in any professional career.
LCM Student Association is a non-profit, interfaculty student organization affiliated with the Leuven Center of Collaborative Management (LCM) and the faculties of Psychology and Law at KU Leuven.
LCM SA is convinced that to become a good negotiator, theoretical knowledge does not suffice. Negotiation skills require practice. During our workshops, we analyze the key elements of negotiation and use these in cases.
These workshops are exclusive to our members: every year 36 students are carefully selected based on their motivation and potential to become excellent negotiators. Each workshop consists of an introduction to the topic and is then followed by practical cases. Our experienced team provides personal and valuable feedback.
To provide the optimal learning opportunity, we try to cover a maximum of diverse topics. Our members and alumni also get the opportunity to compete in a variety of business and mediation competitions.
LCM SA firmly believes in the wider benefit of increasing students’ negotiation skills and knowledge. Via its Facebook and LinkedIn pages, as well as its Newsroom, LCM SA tries to expand its reach well beyond its members. From posting Monday Negotiation Tips to writing more profound articles, LCM SA strives to gather all those with an interest in negotiation and feed their hunger for negotiation knowledge.
