About the course
We negotiate every day – with employers, coworkers, employees, clients, and others.

Through a set of interactive, increasingly complex negotiation exercises, participants will hone their negotiation skills, learn about their negotiation style, and develop a systematic approach for approaching a variety of negotiation situations.
