About Us

Leveraging the Harvard methodology, Common Outlook teaches executives and their teams the strategic negotiation and management skills that drive business performance. Our clients experience better productivity, profitably, efficiency, and creativity.

Our approach is born out of a theoretical framework developed by our colleagues at the Harvard Negotiation Project. It has been reinforced through years of research and further refined through extensive practice with corporate and governmental clients around the world.

Even the most powerful ideas are of little value to your organization unless they are relevant and actionable. We help create sustainable change that drives new behaviours across your organization. 

We maintain a relentless focus on providing actionable solutions to the issues your organization is facing. As a result, you are able to effectively apply the concepts we teach to realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency, creativity and profitability. 

What makes Common Outlook different?

  • We don’t just talk about the the ideas –- we use them. We “walk the talk” to the best of our ability, and we live by the advice we give our clients.
  • We maintain a relentless focus on explaining how our ideas can be used in your context. We provide insight and counsel on the issues your organization is facing.
  • We help our clients sustain changes in behaviour through follow-up and reinforcement, keeping new concepts top-of-mind.
  • Our approach is born out of a solid theoretical framework developed at a world-leading university (described above), and refined through ongoing research and extensive practice with corporate and governmental clients around the world.
