As a professional coaching, training and consulting organization, we support our clients in a number of ways, all around the themes of negotiation, mediation, conflict resolution, but also ethics, leadership and storytelling. Our training is engaging, interactive and fun, always tailored to our client's negotiation environment.
Some seminar participants seek to deepen their learning and work with us on an individual basis to strengthen their particular negotiation skills. This support can be both live and online.
When requested, Rational Games can serve as live negotiation consultants, accompanying real-world negotiations from start to finish, advising on preparation, execution and moderation of lessons learned.
Our Approach to Negotiation
Our approach to negotiation, mediation and conflict resolution is very much in the spirit of the "Harvard" method of collaborative and creative negotiation, the kind that leaves all parties better off and strengthens the relationship between them, even as each remains true to its interests and values.

»One of the most meaningful, memorable, and phenomenally facilitated sessions I have ever been a part of. It was already such an honor for our team to be part of the Rational Games family - this workshop, I must confess, was the cherry on top! I have found myself sharing learnings from this session across multiple personal conversations ever since the SOL team attended it. Couldn't be more grateful to Mark Young and Antonia T. for curating and taking us through a session that left us with such a massive learning curve!«
»Experimental methods, fascinating roleplays with professional actors, a very useful and enjoyable seminar.«
»Mark is a brilliant facilitator! I have attended two of his negotiations classes at the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) and I can surely say that I grew a lot as a negotiator thanks to his course. He is very hands on, straight forward, honest, and above all he made sure that we understood that negotiating is not about positions but rather about creating win-win situations without compromising individual values. The skills that I have learned during his class are crucial not only in a business setting, but also during everyday situations. «
»I went through some negotiation trainings with Mark Young at ESMT in Berlin and it was a great experience. Highly recommended!«
»The workshop opened up new perspectives, possibilities and horizons (both professional and personal) for us. Not only did you provide us with theory and tools necessary to become better in our jobs but also with experiences that made me understand myself and the people around me in a better way«
»Everything is crunched in an extremely simple, easy to use framework. One of the most practical, condensed seminars we have had«
»Other professors should learn from Mark’s didactic«

»So far the best lecture about leadership. Incredibly inspirational, very well structured. Mr. Young was always making sure that we were following him and learning. The last activity with the actor was just astonishing. «
