NEW Leadership Course

Effective leaders are effective negotiators.

While we often think negotiation is useful outside of the organization, the majority of discussions leaders have within their organizations - whether up, down or across - are in fact negotiations. Leaders must seek to understand and appeal to the interests of those they lead, and communicate effectively in order to negotiate mutually satisfactory outcomes and sustain and enhance relationships in the process.

Negotiation Skills for Leaders

This course will provide you with a step by step model, using a 'principled negotiation' approach that can be used with many levels in your organization. You will also learn to develop positive relationships during negotiations, even where there has been a strained relationship in the past.
