Last month, in collaboration with Mentoray , we launched one of the first courses, the expanded and more comprehensive version of The Science and Art of Negotiation . The number one request from business professionals is to be more “comfortable, confident, and competent” in negotiation skills. This is exactly what this comprehensive course does.
Each course is a 3-4 hour online self-running course provides the skills, tools, and techniques to master the (Science or the Art) of Negotiation, the core competency of business. The Science of Negotiation appeals to the left brain while the Art of Negotiation appeals to the right brain of business pros. Whether buyer or seller, we need strength in both Science and Art to succeed in negotiation. Ample demonstrations and step-by-step how-to instruction punctuates this course.

Concession behavior, Win-Win and other strategies used by the best negotiators are then built brick by brick to produce a complete structure. Use this coupon code for a 20% discount. TXBPVJYM
