Great leaders negotiate based on principles. Rather than understanding negotiations as an opportunity to defeat an adversary, they work as a team together with their counterparts, to increase the value of the outcome for every stakeholder. They persuade, but within a framework of truthfulness, respect, and social responsibility, because their goal is not a short-term personal victory, but a long-term fruitful relationship that benefits everyone.
 
In this workshop, we will emphasize the importance of continuously improving our negotiation skills, regardless of our area of expertise. Also, we will introduce the principled negotiations model, increase our ability to identify opportunities for negotiation, and become more persuasive negotiators. Finally, the workshop will offer an opportunity to apply these concepts in practical simulations.

Project management


Projects are at the heart of an organization's life. Whether it is to carry out a specific project for a client, develop a new product or modify existing work methods, efficient project management is the key to achieve your goals. Should you use an agile methodology or lean towards a more traditional approach to manage your project? Should you use a tool or not? Should you monitor risks or quality? How far should you be tracking schedule and costs? This training reviews the foundation of project management by covering the essential elements of successful project execution. Learn the methods and processes needed to manage the planning, execution, monitoring, and closure of projects of all sizes, and get the opportunity to apply key concepts by working in teams on a fictitious project.
