About the Online PD Event

We negotiate everyday in business and in our personal lives.  In every instance with a customer, supplier, employee, co-worker or family member, lies an untapped opportunity to make gains and expand relationships. 

Negotiations is a critical skill yet very few executives, and entrepreneurs are formally trained or even comprehend the basics. This is due to a mistaken belief that negotiating is a natural skill.

As an HR professional you negotiate with employees, leadership, and internal/external stakeholders everyday.  For this reason, negotiation training is critical to success.  This session gives you the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of negotiations and gives you more confidence and developed negotiation skills. 

Great negotiators are not born that way. They are trained.

Canadian negotiation expert Georges Levesque will lead this 4-hour virtual seminar entitled: ‘The Basics of Negotiation for HR Professionals’.  During this event you will learn the following in 4 modules:

Module 1: The Negotiation Framework

Module 2: Practical applications

Module 3: Labour negotiations

Module 4: Salary negotiations
