Negotiation. Is that the best you can do?
Jun 23, noon-1 pm CT
Presenter, Allan Dubyts
Negotiation is one of the most rewarding life skills. Most people can double what they are getting in life, simply by asking more often. That is when they can get past the fear and unsupportive beliefs that hold most people back. And the people who achieve mastery in negotiation skate through life getting about 80% of what they want in a way that seem effortless.
In this one-hour session we will focus on the high leverage steps required to move through the 4 stages to the mastery level. Once you understand the principles all it takes is practice. How far you go is up to you.
This session is delivered through the Manitoba Tourism Education Council
Courage, Confidence and Resilience: Facing and Embracing Change - October 5, 2021
Time: 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm
Presenter, Allan Dubyts
Change is an essential part of life and the source or cause of every one of our problems. When faced with change, we tend to use one of two types of strategies:
avoiding, denial and distractions
facing and embracing
This one-hour session is about facing and embracing change. Our situation and our environment are in a state of constant change. Facing change starts with having the Courage to simply see the truth of the situation, to not get caught up in the fear, to not over estimate the negative impact, or underestimate our ability to handle the situation.
Courage enables us to make a decision. Confidence enables us to take action and sustain that action until a level of competence is achieved. Resilience enables us to remain strong, both physically and psychologically in the face of an obstacle, a set-back, or a traumatic event.
