WIN – WIN Negotiations

In this program participants will discover and learn about:

how to reach mutually satisfying agreements (WIN-WIN concept) by
  • disengaging the people from the problem,
  • focusing on interests, not positions and
  • working together to find creative and fair options.

To achieve the above goals, preparation, planning and structured thinking are important pre-requisites, but they alone will not ensure your success!

Duration:         2 Days / This program is valid for 14 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.

Participants:  6 –  12
