Become aware of your negotiation style and discover how to capitalize on strengths while mitigating weaknesses

Negotiators rarely get a second chance at the same negotiation and often receive little or no feedback on the efficacy of their performance. The English language program Negotiation Mastery (NEGa) helps executives improve their conceptual understanding of the negotiation process with an intellectual framework to organize these interactions. Participants will learn the art of negotiation and value creation by using new concepts tailored to different types of deals.
