Mastering the Art of Negotiation Seminar

Are you tired of getting the short end of the stick in negotiations?

For most of us, negotiating is not something we come by naturally. Sometimes we don’t even realize that we are directly involved in a negotiation. And when we do, we often wind up feeling uncomfortable, frustrated and angry because we didn’t get what we wanted from the negotiation.

The fact is that negotiation is a skill – and skills can be learned!

That’s great news because developing negotiating skills can be one of the most important management tools that you can have in today’s competitive environment.

In this seminar you will learn how to recognize opportunities to negotiate, as well as gaining a thorough understanding of the strategies, tactics, ploys, power plays and counter measures you need to succeed in any negotiation.
