Everything in life is a negotiation
In this episode we focus on the art and science of negotiation with Professor Horacio Falcao. Professor Falcao argues that negotiation is a skill that can be taught, learned and honed with practice and that in doing so can make a meaningful difference to your life.
In this interactive webinar, Professor Jennifer Petriglieri explores how stress builds in teams, what resilience actually is, and shares practical insights from research on how leaders can build a resilient workforce.
What drives effective behaviour? Even well experienced leaders who are aware of best practices might deviate from such behaviour due to deeply ingrained habits
What are the attributes of a good negotiator? The ability to create value, innovate, build strong and meaningful relationships, have a sense of purpose, and enjoy the process along the way. While the art of negotiation is neither obvious nor easy, it can be taught.
Large companies find themselves under increasing pressure to ensure rapid innovation. Not surprisingly, corporate venturing activities (CVA) are often at the top of boards and top executives' agenda.
