Negotiation Skills for Women Part II (WEB)

Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)

Negotiation Skills for Women Four-Part Series Overview:

Defining negotiation as a “conversation leading to agreement,” the She Negotiates training permits women to use their existing strengths and to refine what they do naturally to keep human and work relations running smoothly in midst of the competitive win-lose environment that permeates far too much of American commerce.

Women who have taken our courses have said it transformed all of their relationships, resulting in raises up to 40% of their existing salaries, doubled or tripled their fees, and make all their relationships with friends, spouses and children much much better.

Seminar #2: Asking Diagnostic Questions and Mastering the Basic Negotiation Principles of Framing and Anchoring

This session teaches you how to ask diagnostic questions to learn your bargaining partner’s needs, desires, fears, preferences and priorities for the purpose of framing your proposals in a manner that satisfies those interests. While contentious negotiation tactics (shaming, ingratiation, persuasive argumentation, gamesmanship, threats and promises) are useful to convince another to do something he doesn’t want to do, interest-based strategies allow you to let the other side “have its own way” while at the same time getting exactly what you want. You will also learn how to use the power of framing an anchoring to “win” every negotiation, whether it’s a settlement conference, mediation or compensation negotiation.
