How to be the BEST negotiator every day by Sharon O'Day.docx

Please mark your calendars and join us for the Suncoast ASTD-Sarasota Geographic Interest Group (GIG) Meeting on June 10, 2014 at 6 pm. 

Sharon O’Day, an attorney, worked with refugees in the Washington, DC area before joining the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a Protection Officer, traveling around the world for eight years assisting refugees in high conflict areas find a safe place to temporarily relocate.  In 1999 she resettled to Sarasota, Florida and became a member of the Florida Bar.  In 2006 she received her Supreme Court Certification as a Family Mediator and in 2011 her Civil Mediation Certification.  We are fortunate to have Sharon O’Day present at our June meeting on the topic: How to be the Best Negotiator Every Day.

We all negotiate every day, but how effective are we at this critical skill?  Negotiations do not have to be a battle with a winner and a loser.  In this fun, interactive session you will learn how to negotiate without fear.  Whether you are negotiating with your spouse over what movie to see, your employer over salary, or a car dealer to purchase a car, the skills of a professional negotiator can help you meet the challenge.  You will learn some techniques that will help you move through the negotiations to help you arrive at win-win solutions to common problems, resulting in a positive solution for everyone.
