“The Conscious Negotiator Program was exceptionally grounded in real situations, providing attendees with invaluable tools and practical methods.
Sam and Sarah made you think about and see things differently. I was able to refresh on some things and gained new skills and resources, and learned how to (re)organize my approach to prepare for various types of negotiations.“
