For many, the word negotiation conjures up images of uncomfortable salary negotiations or business executives hammering out of high-stake contracts to win as much as they can while making as few concessions as possible. The truth is that we negotiate all the time. We use negotiation to decide priorities at our workplace and to settle differences in our friendships. This workshop is designed to demystify negotiation and help participants incorporate a structured preparation process to foster better communication and ultimately better outcomes.
