Negotiation skills can be learned! Whether you are trying to influence others inside your own organization or dealing with customers and suppliers on the outside, you can build tools that are helpful in finding a solution. We know a substantial amount about what separates successful negotiators from average negotiators. Large differences exist in how they prepare and how they perform. This interactive session will provide practical tips for boosting confidence and achieving better outcomes in both formal and informal negotiations.
Richard Coughlan has served for more than 20 years on the management faculty of the University of Richmond, where he teaches courses on negotiations, ethics and decision-making to audiences ranging from undergraduates to chief executives. He is also a keynote speaker, facilitator and strategic advisor for corporate and non-profit clients across the mid-Atlantic region.
