Hiding behind a colleague to do all the negotiating for you? Letting your agent/manager/lawyer handle all the negotiating and not sure how to claim your own voice? Feeling intimidated about money and talking through a deal?

This interactive workshop will teach the skills needed to take control of negotiating, from maximizing interaction with those leading the negotiations on your behalf to the best strategies to get what you really want. Learn tips on being centered, confident and persuasive throughout the negotiation. This workshop is for anyone who wants to become a truly skillful negotiator and create a win/win for everyone.
