Leading Negotiations During Challenging Economic Times

These are and continue to be testing times especially when we are seeking the best outcome possible in a negotiation. Whether it is realized or not, we negotiate every day. We do it at work, we do it in our personal lives. Put simply, we are always negotiating something. Every day decisions are subject to a negotiation, yet for most people, negotiations are not easy. Natural-born negotiators are rare, and few people have consciously developed a consistently effective approach to negotiating on their own. This deficit in negotiation skills leads to personal frustration as well as incalculable losses in opportunity, efficiency, and productivity. 

This workshop reminds us of what we need to do to reach quality working agreements via a consistently effective process of negotiation. You will learn how to manage the process of negotiation from planning through implementation using tactics that best fit any situation. Fast-paced and highly experiential, the program provides ample opportunity to practice negotiation skills and receive feedback.

Our next online class is scheduled for August 12, 2021 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. (CDT). The fee to attend is $250 per person.
