Surgent's Negotiating Unmasked (NEGU)
Negotiating Unmasked is intended to provide participants with a practical approach to negotiating. Negotiating should not be thought of as hidden knowledge, nor should there be any mythology surrounding it. This program will analyze the components embedded in negotiating and will provide tips and tools for superior results. This program should prove to be beneficial both for participants who feel uncomfortable with the process and for more experienced negotiators. Participants will be provided with a recipe for successful negotiating to be complemented and accented by each participant's own special mix of style and expertise. The discussion leader will illustrate this analytical framework with a sprinkling of war stories based on his extensive experience. The goal of Negotiating Unmasked is to demystify the process. Participants will be presented with an analytical framework that will reduce concerns about the process and allow them to concentrate on the subject matter of a negotiation.
