Negotiation Skills for the Entrepreneur Workshop

ENTR Workshop with John Fitzpatrick - October 30, 12 - 1pm

Having strong negotiation skills for an entrepreneur can be crucial when it comes to having success in their business. Entrepreneurs will not succeed in starting and growing their business if they don’t negotiate for what they want. By developing skills in negotiation, you will become more confident at identifying what you want and how to get it. Being good at negotiating; however, is a skill that takes time and practice. The uniqueness of each person, bundled with their priorities, behavioral styles, and emotions can influence the strategy and tactics you use to achieve success.

Join us for an interesting and informational workshop on October 30th from 12-1pm at the University Center, 115.

  • To recognize when it is best to disengage from the negotiation.
