Preserving Positive Workplace Communication and Negotiation

Did you know that solving the other person’s problem is the way to advance your own problem solving? Do you want to learn new approaches to making the case for advancing volunteer engagement? As a volunteer engagement leader, your communication, negotiation and problem solving skills are of the utmost importance.  You also have many opportunities to engage in work-related negotiations - to advance volunteerism, implement new initiatives or gain new resources, and to advance your status as a leader in your organization. To increase your chances for success, equip yourself with new tools that will enhance your ability to be an effective advocate and even better communicator. This training is for everyone! You will position yourself to achieve better outcomes by learning new interest-based communication and negotiation strategies. This is a highly experiential workshop with role plays and opportunities to bring in your own scenarios.
