Hello, my name is Sean McArdle. I have been teaching for more than 15 years to both government and industry on how people can lead more effective lives to a more effective job and in general, become happier.
Of all the skills that I teach, one stands out as perhaps the most valuable, that skill is the skill to negotiate. The reason is simple, most people lead lives of quiet desperation that is what Thoreau said. The fact is, we do not have to be desperate; we can get, do have almost anything we want, if we know how to negotiate for it.
So, today, I want to talk to you a little bit about what it takes to become a more effective negotiator. Thanks, I look forward to it.
