Why this Workshop?

Negotiation is simply the process of getting what you want from another person.

Many people think of negotiation as a formal process involving businesses closing a profitable deal. However, this is only a part of the picture. In fact, everyone in their everyday lives is a negotiator.

Children negotiate with their parents over TV time. Teenagers negotiate for late evenings. Couple negotiate with each other over most of things. Friends negotiate with each other over what to do and where and what to eat. You as well as others negotiate every day.

Getting what you want in these everyday situations can improve your life and well-being by reducing stress and contention. By Getting what you want more often you will feel greater success, synchronicity and serendipity in your life.
