Link to video:
Show students video. Note: It is preferable to give students the target language before showing them the video because this facilitates understanding the scene better instead of replaying it twice.
Questions for discussion:
- Describe what is happening in the video. Who are the characters?
- What might be each one's interests (Steve Job's interests and Paul's)?
- Which character has the weaker position? Is this weakness clearly shown?
- Give an example of one statement that shows a point of strength.
- Have they reached a solution or made a decision?
- What are each of their Best Alternatives to a Negotiated Agreement (BATNA*).
- Did they refer to objective standards of legitimacy to further their point of view. If yes, how? If not, what is the result?
* BATNA is a term coined by Roger Fisher and Willaim Ury in their best seller “Getting to Yes: Negotiation without Giving in”.
