Event details:  

Everything in life is negotiable. Yet, how many of us actually live by this adage? We too often take things as they are, tolerating disadvantages and feeling powerless as a result. And sometimes without realizing it, we fail to set boundaries, state our needs, and ask for what we really want. Whether it is not wanting to upset someone else, cause a problem, or risk hearing the word "no", we do not assert our desires and end up missing important opportunities. For many of us, winning in a negotiation isn't rewarding it if it means we have to see the other party lose. It just isn't worth playing a win-lose game. What if there was a win-win way to approach the negotiation opportunities that life brings? During this talk you'll learn tips to approaching, performing, and closing negotiation opportunities with clarity and joy. Yes, that's right ?" once you learn to get out of your own way, you can actually learn to enjoy the negotiation process!
