  • Go into any situation with 100% confidence that you will get the results you want
  • Consistently satisfy and attract the right clients or customers
  • Know what to ask for and how to ask
  • Understand strategies to turn a discussion or disagreement to a more favorable result
  • Have the mindset to think like a negotiator and ethically influence your outcomes
  • Avoid the most common mistakes made in negotiation
