1:30 PM – 2:45 PM     Business School: The Power of Influence in Negotiating


We negotiate every day: with our boss, with our customers, with our vendors and with our colleagues. Whether you are negotiating price with customers and vendors, or seeking the resources needed to complete a project, this program offers the tools and techniques to enable you to influence others and get what you want. The goal of this program is to get you to think about negotiating differently, improving your negotiating skills by using the three Cs: convince, collaborate and create. This highly interactive program is designed to teach you how to apply these skills to everyday dealings both internally and externally.
