Who Attends

Not just CEOs. The KARRASS Effective Negotiating® seminars are designed to meet the learning needs of all businesspeople. Whether you’re just starting out, already a manager, or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, these programs provide negotiation tactics and strategies that resonate at all levels of experience.

The tools provided can be applied immediately, and will make a profound and positive change in your preparation, approach, and outcome. Whether you negotiate person-to-person, business-to-business, or department-to-department, better skills mean better results.

Owners and Management

As the decision makers, you are often called upon to be either the primary negotiator or, at the very least, the person behind the scenes evaluating proposals, determining counter-offers, and deciding when to say, “You’ve got a deal.” The buck stops with you, the owners, the senior and mid-management. With that being said, sharpening your negotiating skills is a lifelong commitment.

Attendees include:

  • Chief Executive Officer
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Chief Technology Officer
  • Chief Creative Officer
  • Chief Diversity Officer
  • Chief Operations Officer
  • Chief Administrative Officer
  • Chief Information Officer
  • Chief Training Officer

Business sectors include:

Your supply-chain role provides you interaction with internal customers, external suppliers, and a wealth of industry contacts. These interactions give you information and knowledge no one else may have. Learning how to use this information in a negotiation can have a profound impact and create real value. We will teach you how.

Sometimes you have to negotiate a transaction, and sometimes you have to negotiate a relationship. To be successful you must learn how to adapt your style to fit the particular negotiating situation. We will teach you how to develop a variety of different negotiating skills.

THE PROGRAM WAS GREAT! MY SEMINAR LEADER AND THE STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE KEPT ME CONSTANTLY STIMULATED. I NOW AM BETTER PREPARED TO GO INTO AN IMPORTANT NEGOTIATION MEETING AND STAY IN CONTROL, WHILE FINISHING THE MEETING SATISFIED.
