Workplace effectiveness revolves around being good at all the "little things." Whether it's how to run a good meeting, have a difficult conversation with a challenging employee, or finessing a tough client situation, the best employees have a range of skills necessary for success. Add to the list negotiation and conflict management skills, the art of finding win-win solutions and avoiding unproductive disagreements. Prior to this one-day class, you will complete an online Thomas-Killman Conflict Mode assessment to understand your own relationship with conflict. Then in class, learn a variety of approaches to negotiating successfully, focusing on reaching true collaboration where both parties come away winners. The class includes ample time for skill practice so that you will leave the session with experience leading successful negotiations of all kinds.
