Description:

Nombreuses sont les personnes qui appréhendent le moment où elles prendront la parole devant un auditoire. Cependant, les présentations font souvent partie des tâches obligées des professionnels ou des universitaires. En adoptant la bonne approche pour préparer et livrer votre exposé, l’anxiété qui vous habite en pareille situation fera place à la confiance.

Great leaders negotiate based on principles. Rather than understanding negotiations as an opportunity to defeat an adversary, they work as a team together with their counterparts, to increase the value of the outcome for every stakeholder. They persuade, but within a framework of truthfulness, respect, and social responsibility, because their goal is not a short-term personal victory, but a long-term fruitful relationship that benefits everyone. In this workshop, we will emphasize the importance of continuously improving our negotiation skills, regardless of our area of expertise.
