“Communicating and Leading Change: The Human Design Specification”
shows how specific characteristics of people, along with your purpose, should be the primary drivers when communicating and leading change. With respect to a product, a design specification provides detailed information about the requirements for the product and how the product is put together. By analogy, people have a design specification – universal characteristics that make us human. Understanding the action implications of the human design specification allows us to be more effective communicators and leaders of change.

"The Entrepreneurial Approach to Negotiating from Weakness"
The ability to negotiate astutely is an essential personal power skill. Give and take exchanges go on constantly in our business relationships as well as in our social interactions - the bargaining process never ends. In this empowering one-hour session you will be exposed to an interactive discussion on Win – Win negotiation. In Win – Win negotiation there are no losers; both parties accomplish their primary goals, and thereby enhance the strength of their long-term relationship. By understanding what goes on in the bargaining process, and how to orchestrate that process, you will increase your chances of reaching a mutually beneficial outcome. However, as this real-life case study will demonstrate, the challenges can be enormous.
