CREATE Better Solutions to Conflict in Business and in Life
Whether business or personal, the conflicts we deal with in our lives have at least 5 factors in common.
Currency of some kind is being exchanged, and it's not always money.
Reliability is an issue - can the other party be trusted?
Energy is expended by the parties.
Alternatives exist - otherwise, why bother to negotiate?
Time pressure plays a role.
Emotions influence all of the other factors.
In this program, Ed Riggins builds on 30 years of experience of being a paid negotiator to bring these 5 issues to life using real-world examples from his professional and personal experience. Attendees will leave with new tools that will help them to CREATE better solutions in times of conflict.
