Leadership, Negotiation Techniques
Great leaders are great negotiators. As the world becomes a more uncertain environment, the requirement for developing leadership as a skill instead of as a role is at a premium. This subject will benefit those who desire to grow on their self-awareness, learn about inspirational leadership and negotiation techniques to maximize their effectiveness and contribution at work and their own life.
Learn strategic leadership skills to lead teams effectively. Demonstrate team-working capacity, as well as problem-solving abilities. Discover how to use power appropriately and how people like to be motivated at work.
Through a series of group exercises, you will learn how to become a better leader and improve your ability to bargain successfully and ethically by taking part in Win-Win negotiation scenarios, discovering strategies for mutual gain, alongside a diverse group of students. Classes are very dynamic with individual and group reflections, participatory debate, exercises, and little theoretical content.
