Posted by WEST Board Member on Feb 7, 2017 9:20:00 AM

Negotiation skills are required of all professionals. In fact, you use these skills in many phases of both your work and personal life.

According to a recent study in the Journal of Organizational Behavior, failing to negotiate on an initial job offer could mean missing out on over $600,000 in salary during a typical career. 

This session will focus on negotiation strategies to help you achieve better outcomes. We will discuss how to effectively prepare for a negotiation, think on your feet and deal with conflict. This session will be an interactive discussion with exercises to hone your negotiation skills.
