You negotiate your salary. You negotiate your rent. You negotiate when buying a car. And if you don’t, you should.

Negotiation skills not only help you get the best price or ask for a raise, but they can also help you approach conflict and challenging situations cooperatively and creatively.

Exclusively for Hands of Peace alumni, the 6-session Negotiation Training course will provide a foundational negotiation vocabulary and toolkit to lead more intentionally and effectively. Designed by Pathways Institute for Negotiation Education, this skill-building training program cultivates critical life skills to address difficult situations and conversations.

Negotiation Training is an interactive course; the learning experience will entail more active participation and less lecturing. Participants will spend over 70% of each session engaging with each other; there will be breakout rooms and other innovative approaches toward harnessing the value of our shared digital space and tapping into our collective wisdom.

Faced with a global pandemic, political unrest and social upheaval, life as a change leader has never been more critical – and stressful. How do you stop the world from wearing you down? Using the Community Resiliency Model (CRM), licensed therapist Jo-ann Rosen, MA, LMFT, provided Hands of Peace alumni with a deeper understanding of the human nervous system. They mastered the skills needed to keep it in top condition in the face of toxic stress and everyday adversity. The three-part workshop helped alumni identify and access strengths for success and confidence.
