October 25, 2018 — Improve Your Negotiation Effectiveness Now, led by Susan Borke of BorkeWorks. Being prepared for a negotiation often makes a real difference in its ultimate success, so why do so many people fail to take this most important step? There are many excuses but they all boil down to this: most people really don't know how. 

In this presentation, you'll learn a practical, easy to implement approach to use when preparing for negotiations. This presentation includes how Ms. Borke and others have used the 3 R's of effective negotiation preparation successfully. Once you understand and begin to practice the process, you'll reap the benefits of being a more effective negotiator.
