Boot Camps

Bring a Negotiation Boot Camp to your Organization!

You don’t have to come all the way to Cambridge, Massachusetts to participate in an NTF exercise.

NTF negotiation experts travel to campuses and organizations in the U.S. and abroad to deliver negotiation boot camps. Boot Camps are 1- to 5-day workshops that train up to 30 participants in essential negotiation skills and contemporary conflict in the Eurasian sphere. Alternatively, we deliver online boot camps that unfold across different virtual negotiation rooms to connect learners from around the globe.

Boot Camp participants have the opportunity to evaluate their baseline negotiating skills with a short bargaining exercise, learn about ongoing negotiating challenges in Eurasia, and—in advanced boot camps—participate in an NTF immersive negotiation exercise. At the conclusion of the boot camp, participants will come away with the fundamental knowledge necessary to engage in the “Harvard method” of principled negotiation, an advanced understanding of a Eurasian conflict (focus dependent on the teaching modules delivered at the boot camp), and experience managing simulated conflicts in dynamic, complex environments.
