Full Day Bundle available for both Ethics in Negotiation and Advanced Ethics in Negotiation.

Get beyond “getting to yes” by navigating the ethical pitfalls that can derail any negotiation.

Ethical issues that arise in the course of a negotiation are not always obvious. But they can be fatal.

While there are many “how to negotiate” programs, this unique, interactive workshop will take you beyond ‘getting to yes’ and guide you through the ethical pitfalls that can undermine your negotiation. 

Using real life case studies and negotiation scenarios, over 3 interactive hours you will understand what “ethical negotiation” demands, learn to identify the key issues and acquire strategies for how to navigate them.

Plus! Get all of your 2021 professionalism hours in a half-day. NOTE: this session will not be recorded. Live attendance is required.

Choose between our foundations course or an advanced workshop.
