Ms. Mukta Mahajani,Author of Best Seller - "Let’s Talk" speaks on “Negotiation and Communication at Workplace”

For MBA graduates negotiation is a constant part of life, it is a skill which is tested in daily events of business. It was a delight for the MBA students of IITK to have Ms. Mukta Mahajani for a seminar. She has authored a new book – ‘Let’s Talk’ which talks about Negotiation and Communication at workplace. She is an accomplished lawyer, a professional consultant, a writer and a recognized speaker.
She started the talk by explaining what is Negotiation, and the significance of these skills in today’s business setting. She explicated this through multiple real workplace scenarios including formal meetings, informal gathering etc. She highlighted the most common mistakes people make while handling uncommon issues and gave valuable suggestions to overcome them. She also talked about cases of conflict situations and offered insightful and practical suggestions to deal with those real life situations.

Ms. Mahajani suggested various negotiation techniques and sub techniques to successfully deal with complex situations. Some of them were as follows: Separate people from issues, i.e. Focus on project issues and prevalent logic to help resolve deadlocks instead of on personal successes and qualifications or prior achievements for mere one-upmanship. Another one was to find project/work parameters and goals that everyone can agree on. Not being upset about or defensive about ideas not being accepted.
Some of the methods of strengthening communication skills were also suggested like considering the written word, or putting an email esp. when the boss is not around. Another was the Value of a mentor or friend at workplace whom you approach when in trouble.
The session was highly interactive with questions pouring in from the students. Overall it was an enlightening experience and more so a unique one. It was concluded by the vote of thanks.

‘I am an IITian’, even after two months here at IIT Kanpur this one line still fills our heart with excitement. Each one among the 54 students here who have started the journey into the MBA programme of IIT Kanpur, batch of 2017-19, feels that pride and with that equally realizes the responsibility it carries.
We started our journey here on 20th July. Meeting our batch mates for the first time still feels thrilling. Though we knew each other through the whatsapp/facebook group that was created by our seniors to make our registration process as smooth as possible. We were given several assignments before the registration to give us an inkling of the idea of how life at IIT Kanpur is going to be. Assignments were planned in a way such that we get a hands-on experience on case studies, presentations, group activities and article reading. We began burning the midnight oil as a precursor to actually doing it, and how! These assignments u…
