This 2-day course is an indepth course that covers the advanced
skills of negotiation.

Stephen first created a diverse learning environment in the negotiation leadership course. Then challenged the group with a mix of ideas from both the real world and respected thought leaders. I was fully engaged for the 2 days and I look forward to putting into practice what I've learned and applying his unique planning tools to every negotiation!
