Quantum2 Topic of the Month
With budget preparation in full swing, the subject of negotiation seems to be a topic of current interest. Consequently, we are offering a second set of tips for developing your negotiation skills—that of negotiation styles.
Negotiation styles can be generally characterized into “soft” and “hard”. Soft techniques involve collegiality, teamwork and a mutual commitment to solve a problem. Hard styles focus more on being tough and sometimes coercive or manipulative to get a result. Here are five classic negotiation styles with descriptions and suggested appropriate use.
The session surrounding these negotiation styles is being offered via the Web on November 16, 2006. Register now to attend this WebEx session.
As always, your suggestions for workshop topics are welcomed. Also, if you know a friend or colleague who would benefit from Quantum2, please encourage them to sign up today.
