Practical facilitation and negotiation Logo aicpa

  $79.20 - 129.00 |   26 Sep 2018 |   13:00-15:00 |   CPE: 2.0 |   AICPA |   Personal Development |   AICPA Store

Professionals lose 31 hours per month in unproductive meetings, which is approximately four days of valuable working time. Meetings are crucial to the workplace, but this statistic emphasizes the fact that meetings need to be improved. This webcast will identify the essential components for facilitating a successful meeting.

We all know that meetings typically involve negotiation. Whenever a group of people converge, there will always be disagreements on how to approach a situation. The problem with negotiation is once that word arises, everyone reverts to competition and a “win at all costs” mentality. This crushes a meeting’s productivity. Meanwhile, the goal of negotiation is to move forward with the most optimal solution that time allows.

Ultimately, if you want to move anything forward, effective negotiation skills are necessary. To get things moving forward, you must facilitate discussion and work. The two go together, and this webcast will show you why and how.
