Sharpen Your Negotiating Skills

Course Code: CEPS 1074E
You know the old saying: "You don't get what you deserve in life, you get what you negotiate." And William Marshall is just the person to teach you how. In this day-long workshop, you'll look at different negotiating philosophies. You'll learn how to influence human behaviour, establish objectives, identify dirty tricks and employ productive countermeasures. In short, you'll learn the theory, the tools and the techniques you need for successful win-win negotiations. It's a competitive world out there. So, give yourself the edge you need to win. Spend a day with a pro.
