About This Webinar
To be an effective project manager excellent communication skills are mandatory. Project managers are regularly involved in various forms of negotiation; therefore they must have an understanding of the principles of successful negotiations.

The webinar should also provide participants with knowledge of successful negotiation tips and tactics with emphasis on when, how, and why these techniques apply to project management.

In this interactive session participants are encouraged to reflect on the challenges and importance of communication and negotiation in their positions at work. Through the use of examples and discussion the participants will see how to improve their interaction and communication style as well as becoming more informed on the foundational concepts of successful negotiations.
