Welcome to the Air Force Negotiation Center (AFNC) website. The AFNC provides this site to inform you about the art and science of negotiation. Negotiation is a skill utilized on a regular basis, whether as an engagement tool today's military leaders or as an integral part of problem solving. Skillful negotiation is a proven, positive tool for success. For more information on the AFNC's proven record of education, training, and research, please view our mission brief
. Our goal is to ensure success in current and future negotiations.
You are likely at the AFNC's website for a specific reason. You may have an issue with a current negotiation. You might be preparing for deployment and are in need of preparation for undertaking negotiations with coalition and host-nation partners. It could be that you are simply in need of research on the topic of negotiation. For whatever the reason, our job is to assist you.
As an example, if you are looking for resources to help with an ongoing or potential negotiation in the operational environment, start with warrior resources
. This link provides a current guide and checklist on cooperative negotiation strategy. We designed the rest of the site in a similar fashion. If you cannot find the information you are looking for contact us
and we will assist you.
We also have an email loop to access our corporate email account. We need your feedback and will (delete the extra space) respond in a timely manner. The AFNC welcomes suggestions about our materials, courseware, and website. Please take a minute to share any stories of how you have used negotiation to succeed (or fail) in your mission.
Good luck - The AFNC faculty and staff
