Negotiation – An essential skill for executives

When: 17-18 June 2023

Where: Executive Center, Blue Room, Università della Svizzera italiana

Lecturer: Kandarp Mehta

This session looks at the fundamental elements of the negotiation skill of an executive.

Given that a huge percentage of your working day is spent negotiating, you have already developed a negotiation style through your own experiences. In this program we will create a framework that will help you to formalize your experiences, and to take some time to think critically about what may now be an intuitive process for you.
Consequently, this will allow us to establish a framework that will help you increase your learning every time you are involved in a new negotiation.
The session will provide practical tools and tips that managers can use in their day-to-day negotiations and become more effective.

Come join us in a transformational weekend!
