A master negotiator understands and practices solid, proven techniques that get to “yes,” bypass “no,” and end up with delighted clients leading to future referrals. These negotiation techniques are not human nature, we are not born with these skills! Master negotiators are created through a sincere desire to help others and to learn new skills. Join Jackie for a journey to enhanced negotiation and people skills that can be life changing.
