YP Network: Skills-Building for Effective Negotiation
Thursday, June 24, 2021, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Category: Events

Join us for our virtual workshop on June 24th!  

Do you want to experience a unique and exceptionally effective method of communication which will ensure successful negotiation and diplomacy in your professional and personal interactions? 

Join fellow WFPG members for a workshop where you will learn psychological principles of negotiation and diplomacy, and proven skills which determine your own and others’ “brain style” preferences that you can use to be your best and get results you desire. In this experience, you will see how your preferences relate with others’ styles, to enhance your core competencies and to create effective and desired outcomes in your interactions. You will take a short “brain style” inventory based on extensive research, get your results, and practice skills based on these results which you can then apply to many business and personal situations.

Registrants are asked to answer a few short questions to begin thinking about the interface between psychology and diplomacy. The week of the event, the WFPG will send all registered members a quick 10-question multiple choice survey to determine your style, and to help us place you in the appropriate working group. 

Join us for this fun and informative workshop! You will be surprised and empowered about what you will learn about yourself and others, and gain specific strategies and “soft power” that you can immediately use in your life. The workshop will be led by Columbia University Professor and author Dr. Judy Kuriansky and will include brief remarks by H.E. Katalin Bogyay, former Ambassador of Hungary to the United Nations. 

Thursday, June 24th | 5:30 - 7:00pm ET
