Approach to teaching:

This is a highly interactive workshop, expecting you to participate, discuss and reflect. I take the experiential learning approach: learn a concept – experience it in action – reflect.

Workshop material is evidence-based and combines advice from expert negotiators, thought leaders in negotiation (academics and practitioners), and leaders in women’s empowerment. It draws on a wide range of literature, research and experience with corporate negotiators.

The focus is on women and the particular advantages we have as female negotiators.
