Let me make you an offer that you can’t refuse! The negotiation process is an opportunity to define, communicate, and achieve what you want. A skilled negotiator understands the different variables that allow them to build a partnership with the other party so they can both be satisfied with the outcome of a negotiation. It’s called a win-win result and is key to building relationships for future interactions. Negotiating when there is a lot at stake can be intimidating for the most experienced people. This two-session course will share the tools and techniques necessary to provide a framework and offer the skills necessary to achieve that win-win result you’re looking for. An offer they can’t refuse? Hopefully!
