Lunch & Learn: Winning Negotiations Together

  • VenturePad 1020 B Street San Rafael, CA, 94901 United States (map)

How to get what you want and build stronger relationships

You have a  negotiation that is vital to your business. Everyone says they want a win/win solution in negotiations, but how do you really get that when you have a lot at stake? Learn how genuine curiosity will help you get what you want and build stronger relationships, even when you have a lot to lose.

You'll learn how to: 

  • Get clear about what you want and why you want it
  • Recognize your triggers and responses that sabotage possible agreements
  • Take the emotions out of problem solving
  • Come up with (unexpected) creative agreements

Bring details of your negotiations—we will work on them in this session.
