Course Overview

Success in business as indeed in all walks of life can be very much determined by one’s ability to negotiate. The myth that negotiators are ‘born, not made’ persists but is not true. Negotiation skills, like any other skills, can be developed, honed, and improved. This is a practical, skills-based diploma whereby participants through practising a series of role-plays will improve their negotiation capabilities.
