“Instructional Design Funnies”: Peeling an Orange is a Negotiation Tactic (Social Learning Theory)

In this episode of 30 Rock “It’s Never Too Late for Now”, Alec Baldwin plays Jack, an ever-scheming corporate executive. His protege and confidante is Tina Fey, the producer of a variety show owned by the same company Jack works for. Jack needs to negotiate higher licensing fees for NBC but can’t figure out what his leverage is for the negotiation. Through an unplanned series of role-playing and reflection (social learning theory), he figures out his leverage and how peeling an orange is a priceless negotiation tactic. Adriane Lenox plays the uncompromising nanny.
