Previously titled Executive Negotiations: Influence and Persuasion
Influence success. Create value.
Sharpen your ability to maximize value.
You negotiate all the time—whether it’s with clients or partners, vendors or colleagues, leadership or new hires. Successful negotiations require personal-awareness, preparation and practice.
Rotman’s Negotiations program gives you proven strategies to navigate complex situations so you can create value and enhance key relationships.
In just three days, you’ll be guided from simple, everyday situations to complex scenarios through interactive simulations, extensive feedback and insights from real-world examples.
