​Put yourself a decade ahead of the pack by understanding and practicing the crucial aspects of negotiations.

When you realise that executives spend 80% of their day negotiating, it makes business sense for all professionals to start honing their negotiation skills for future success. In fact, the return-on-investment for negotiating skills training is almost immediate. New brain research has also made this negotiation programme simpler and more powerful as a tool for improving organisational growth and effectiveness. By concentrating on a few big discoveries, neuroscience has enabled the course to focus on an innovative approach that produces a negotiating system that is intuitive and easier to implement.
