About the course
You negotiate all the time—whether it’s with clients or partners, vendors or colleagues, leadership or new hires. Successful negotiators are equipped with self-awareness, preparation and practice. This special live virtual offering is packed with rapid fire case studies, individual, pair and group exercises.
Get proven strategies to navigate complex situations, create value, and enhance key relationships. We’ll guide you from simple, everyday situations to complex scenarios through interactive simulations, extensive feedback and insights from real-world examples. You will also learn how to adapt your negotiation strategies to succeed in the remote work environment you’re currently navigating because of the COVID-19 crisis.
Flexible Learning Design during COVID-19
Don’t feel alone while you learn online.
