Empower Yourself. 

The Program

Negotiation is a core leadership skill. To be an effective negotiator we need self-awareness, understanding of basic negotiation principles, and a lot of practice. The good news is that negotiation skills can be developed.

In a survey amongst senior HR and training managers, we found that negotiation skills, along with building team effectiveness, are the most important training needs of young professionals.

Based on our learning at the Gould Center at Stanford Law School we have curated a one-day workshop aimed at Indian working professionals to better understand and enhance their negotiation skills.

Laila Ollapally and Thomas Ollapally share their expertise and experience to introduce participants to the principles of powerful negotiation. Both have been Visiting Scholars at the Gould Center for Conflict Resolution, Stanford Law School, where they participated as resource people for the renowned Negotiation Seminar.
