Negotiation skills are a necessity in executive management and they enhance conversations around things like, increasing department budgets, resources and compensation. Unfortunately, there are no magical phrases that can guarantee success. Even the most seasoned managers and executives need a compelling strategy before going into a campaign. In this discussion, participants will share their strategies on how to demonstrate confidence, congeniality, and the knowledge necessary to secure positive results.

This program was recorded as part of ALM and Corporate Counsel's 2019 Women, Influence and Power in Law Conference on October 16th, 2019.
