According to Barry Pruitt, "There are few competencies that Risk, BC, DR, and Audit Professionals need today more than negotiation. As a skill, negotiating is the foundation for success in nearly everything that you do. Whether in a small or large organization or department, Business Continuity, Disaster, Risk Managers and others know it's crucial to be proficient in negotiating for data, interviews, feedback, budgets, support, etc.
Your proficiency as a negotiator plays a central role both in determining your professional success as well as ensuring the successful functioning (and recovery) of your organization. This session will highlight the essential steps to take for improving your negotiating skills, cover the most important negotiation tactics and techniques, and give you immediately applicable tools. In today's complex world, "old school" tactics no longer have the same appeal as in the past. Attend this session and gain collaborative approaches to help you negotiate the results you desire as a professional."
