Leadership is not about a role. It’s about actions and a mindset that is focused on taking initiative. In order to be an effective leader, you must learn to negotiate. Similarly, negotiators have to lead others to the most beneficial solutions possible.
Did you know that you negotiate every day? It’s something everyone does, yet most people don’t know it, do it well, or think strategically about how to achieve optimal outcomes. We live in a world where negotiation has become a significant part of our daily lives. In fact, according to research from the MarketWatch Centre for Negotiation, 80% of our communication can be described as a form of negotiation.
Gain skills that hiring managers are looking for. According to a new study by Stanford University there are a series of critical skills and abilities every employee must have in order to succeed in the 21st century. Top among these skills and abilities are: a strongly developed level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Time Management, Listening, the ability to Say No Effectively, Asking for Help, Taking Initiative, and Staying Positive. You will learn all of these concepts and many more in Bay Path’s MS in Leadership & Negotiation program.
Simply put, by the end of the program, you will have developed the confidence to handle any and all challenges that come your way.
