presentation skills effective training associatesIn-Person


In this workshop, you will learn how to apply techniques from the Harvard Negotiation Project, which shift negotiations from win-lose to win-win strategies and enable both parties to come away from the table with more than either expected. Through a series of classroom negotiations, you will discover practical approaches for countering the tactics of the “hard” negotiator that will keep negotiations from slipping into power-based conflicts. You will learn a systematic, four-stage process that identifies interests, options, alternatives, and credible criteria to increase both your negotiating skill and confidence.
