This program is suited for anyone interested in developing skills to handle conflict and negotiations effectively. Participants need to come prepared for this workshop with a list of common conflicts faced in both personal and professional life, an example of a simple negotiation such as buying a car, asking for a raise and an outline of a complex situation requiring negotiating skills such as settling a dispute with a family member or a neighbor.
