In today’s knowledge economy, negotiation among peers is at the heart of just about every successful endeavour. Any woman seeking to develop her career path and maintain her professional and personal interests needs to be familiar with negotiation tools and techniques that would allow her to leverage her knowledge and strength. This workshop is targeted at women who engage in corporate activity, politics or NGOs and want to negotiate from a position of knowledge and strength while maintaining their social relationships intact.
RSM Executive Education’s women in business programmes are offered in partnership with the Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO). ECWO is committed to women’s continued advancement into leadership positions by contributing to management education and actively engaging in the gender debate.
The Negotiating for Success: Women, Careers and Business programme brings together a dynamic group of women who have the potential to take on more senior roles in their organisations. Participants will come from a variety of organisations, including public and private companies and non-profit organisations, and from various levels of management.
