Communication & Negotiation: Moving From Hope To Strategy with Wayne Harrison

  • Royal Foods 248 Fleming Road Tingalpa, QLD, 4173 Australia (map)

You are invited to join members of The Executive Connection for their next speaker session, led by Wayne Harrison on Negotiation.


A measure of success is the ability to negotiate outcomes and resolve conflict with limited resources and competing demands. This interactive session covers strategies to build stronger relationships, and better and more predictable outcomes. It does this by raising awareness of three critical negotiation and conflict resolution elements that motivate others to create value for mutual gain.

  • Preparation that moves you from hope to strategy

  • Process management that controls the discussions conceptual framework

  • Practices that build cooperation and get discretionary effort from others

Session specifics:

  • It includes negotiation exercises that motivate members to discuss and advance their issues

  • The takeaways are highly practical and include a copy of the book, FROM HOPE TO STRATEGY: The Anatomy of Negotiation

  • To stimulate thinking on the topic prior to the session participants are encouraged to do a 5-minute on-line negotiation quiz, click here for more details
