Influencing and Negotiating.jpg



For many people, just making a decision can be hard enough. Convincing others of an idea and its merits and getting support can be even tougher.


We frequently need to influence the behavior and decision making of those around us and we are often called upon to take part in more formal negotiations.  Becoming more aware of the impact you have on others as well as understanding what drives your counterpart’s opinion and position is vital in order to become proficient in influencing and negotiating.

Convincing others' of the merits of an idea or plan needn't be a hand-wringing experience fraught with worry and doubt. Rather, with the right skills, it can be pleasant, effective, and result in much-needed change. This 1-day highly experiencial workshop will provide you with the skills you need to start influencing and negotiating like a pro.
