Monday November 5, 2018  |  8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

• The characteristics of highly effective negotiators
• Understanding the different sources of negotiating power
• How to strengthen your bargaining position
• How to create an open communication flow that allows you to deeply understand the other party
• The 5 steps process to quickly and effectively plan and prepare for your negotiations
