Contracts and Negotiation Foundations Webinar
As part of our partnership with Southern California Edison, we're excited to present another FREE webinar in our series on building your business through the SCE S.T.A.R. (Strategies Towards Achieving Results) series. If you've been around us any amount of time, you've heard us talk about certification, and what it can do for you and your business. All of that is meaningless, however, if you don't know how to negotiate or write a contract, all of that won't mean anything.
If that's you, then you won't want to miss our upcoming webinar!
Negotiating favorable terms can be the key to your success. However, a poorly written contract can jeopardize your business's profitability, assets or ability to perform. This course will provide tools to help businesses understand the requirements, elements and key information for formation of contracts. Using the psychology of negotiations, you will be able to apply negotiation tools and strategies to anything in business and/or personal life.
