7. Influences and persuades

There’s a common misconception that the best negotiators are unyielding tough nuts who yell and pound their fists. Actually, great negotiators don’t shout, pressure or demand. They prepare, ask the right questions and seek a win/win for all parties at the table. Whether you’re negotiating the terms of a business deal, additional resources for your department or the specifics or a new job or position, there are powerful skills and methodologies that can point you toward success.

This highly interactive program explores gender differences in negotiation styles and uses role plays, simulations, discussion and improvisational exercises to increase your ability to influence and gain buy-in. You’ll learn important negotiation tactics, dispel common myths and gain a greater appreciation of the use and value of effective compromise, a strategy most associated with women leaders.

The foundational principles of improvisation will be taught and applied throughout the seminar—no prior “improv” experience is necessary—making this a fun, high-energy session. Test your flexibility and ability to adapt to situations as they change, skills that are critical in both negotiation and leadership. These improvisation-based exercises will be used as a catalyst for learning and invite participants to think about negotiation in a whole new way.
