Winning Negotiation in Three Steps Track
How do you use communication to your advantage? Find managing conflict difficult within your business? Feel unprepared for dealmaking?
Freelancers and entrepreneurs must know how to negotiate. Even seasoned business people often don’t realize what they are missing – or why. Many lose out on immensely valuable assets and opportunities because they do not know how to negotiate. How do you bend the skills for negotiation to your advantage?
This series of classes prepares you for negotiations in three sessions. A fourth session, a lab-simulation, allows attendees to practice what they have learned. Attendees are not required to take all of the classes but their ability to participate fully in the lab will be seriously impaired if they don’t.
Lab: Press Play
November 8, 2011
The series would not be complete without putting it all together. In this lab, participants will form teams and negotiate a contract. The simulation will be based on issues that the attendees themselves have raised and will offer participants the chance to practice using the skills and information they have learned in the prior three classes.

When & Where
No one masters self employment without help from others. As more and more people pursue independent careers, the need for structure, education, and shared accountability grows accordingly. Just as industries have risen to accommodate the needs of a white collar employed workforce, so too will new services be built for the new independent workforce.
To this end, we provide a platform that allows participants to to create programs that are geared toward this goal. These efforts take the forms of classes, workshops, coworking sessions, mentorships, speaker series, and more. The program is driven by a core belief that each participant has something to teach and something to learn from everyone else.
