The unexpected negotiation exercise: Illustrating the connection between our physical and mental states
Date of this Version
In this session, I describe a negotiation exercise designed to illustrate the connection between students’ physical and mental states. It is a 90 minute session that can be run with undergraduates, graduates, or executives. It takes place at the gymnasium and includes a heavily physical component (i.e., actual exercise) as well as a review of relevant literature. At OBTC, I will share everything I use- the release forms designed by our University’s legal team, the structure for the class, the extant literature used in the debrief, and 6 years of students’ reactions to this highly experiential (and sweat-inducing) exercise.
