Have you ever articulated project requirements, agreed on a job offer, or asked for a raise? We all have to negotiate. Join us on April 19 for tips on honing your workplace negotiation skills.

Jack Molisani, president of ProSpring Technical Staffing and the driving force behind the LavaCon conference, will draw on his experience as both a buyer and seller of corporate services, and will share war stories from both sides of the negotiation table in this hands-on session on how to hone your workplace negotiation skills.

During this session you will learn and practice:

  • What is “negotiation”?
  • The difference between win-win, win-lose, and lose-lose negotiation
  • How to avoid fear-based decisions
  • How to prepare for a pending negotiation
  • How to set the stage for success
  • How to get what you really want
  • When to cut your losses and start over elsewhere

You don’t get what you deserve in life—you get what you negotiate!
