Course Description

Successful people don't take no for an answer. They get what you want through successful negotiation. Let Karrass help you strengthen the key negotiating skills you need in business and in life.

The strength of your agreements, understandings and relationships can make the difference between success and failure. Weak agreements always break down. They bring nagging dissatisfaction and aggravation into your business and personal lives. Strong agreements help you reach and exceed your own objectives, while bringing mutual satisfaction to all parties.

Apply the Karrass edge to your most important negotiations.

This is true whether you are:

  • Determining the price and terms at which you buy or sell.
  • Closing with an important customer.
  • Persuading others to work with and not against you.
  • Setting or meeting budgets.
  • Finalizing and administrating simple or complex contracts.
  • Working on a problem with someone important to you.
  • Managing and supervising those responsible for doing.
  • Breaking or avoiding a serious impasse
  • Working efficiently and effectively within your department, the company, and with the outside world

You’ll feel confident and prepared.
