Effective Negotiations in the Workplace (Online)
High-performing managers negotiate everyday—with colleagues, among teams, with other departments, and with other companies and external stakeholders. While the positions and parties may vary, the outcomes often dictate team and organizational success. Good negotiation skills and outcomes are essential to getting things done, achieving mutually positive results, and building high-value relationships.
In this online program, you’ll learn the specific steps of the negotiation process. Through interactive role-playing, case scenarios, peer discussion, and review of proven business negotiating strategies, you will think through challenging situations and trade-offs to become a more effective negotiator.
