Negotiating from Your Strengths:  An exploration of the intersection of dispute resolution theory and negotiation strategy.

Do you want to be a better negotiator?  Do you want to sleep better the night before a big negotiation?  This session will help you do both as we explore negotiation through the lens on conflict resolution strategy.  Applying constructs from both conflict resolution and negotiation strategy we will use these models to examine negotiation team development and negotiation strategy.  We will identify ways to work within rather than against your natural strengths.  Join us and learn to create negotiations that are at once more successful and less stressful.

Are you ready for the negotiation?
