As the saying goes, change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. So how do we manage all that change? Professionals know how to stay calm, listen attentively, speak with confidence, remain objective, and help resolve differences with “win-win” solutions.

Developing Negotiation Skills The training begins with an individualized assessment of conflict preferences. A variety of hands-on exercises help participants develop and practice negotiation strategies that complement their preferred conflict management style(s). Participants will Learn

  • How personal preferences for conflict management align with a preferred negotiation style
  • Ways to analyze a negotiation situation and determine goals and desired outcomes
  • Multiple strategies to plan for negotiations
  • Tactics to manage each stage of the negotiation process
