The art of negotiating is a subtle balance of influence and competition.
Negotiating successfully can be a career boost.
Start when YOU want to start. We will send all the materials when you pay for the module.
Work at your own pace. Do one section a week, or one section every two weeks.
The skills needed to negotiate, from the surface, seem to be a matter of talent; either you’ve go tit or you don’t. On the contrary, research into successful negotiations reveals that having a concrete understanding of negotiation skills and techniques increases the likelihood of success. Honing your skills will reduce the stress during discussions, clear cloudy judgment and give you tools to produce mutually beneficial agreements.
This program gives you focused exposure to the tools that will refine your abilities to negotiate with skill and success. You will dialog with Dr. Gerald Graham, completing exercises and worksheets that strengthen your negotiation expertise.
