Executive Negotiations: Influence and Persuasion
Previously titled Strategic Negotiations
Influence success. Create value.
Advance your negotiation skills.
At Rotman we believe the best way to learn is by doing. To develop your negotiation skills the most effective method is a combination of hands-on practice in a safe environment combined with real world examples and feedback.
Rotman’s Executive Negotiations: Influence and Persuasion program will guide you through negotiation exercises beginning with simple situations and culminating in complex group negotiations.
