Penn State Extension Dairy Team to host negotiation workshop
Building effective negotiations skills can be valuable in dealing with vendors, employees and business associates. To help dairy producers and management increase their confidence, the Penn State Extension Dairy Team will hold a workshop in which participants learn strategies for successful negotiation.
Scheduled for April 30 at the Ranch House Restaurant, 190 Keystone Road, Edensburg, Pa., the session will be held from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Registration fee is $25 per person.
Dairy Extension Educator Ximena del Campo explained that the workshop will teach participants how to “maximize the value of outcomes by learning to plot a course from beginning, to commitment to completion.”
Topics will include basics of principled negotiation, in which participants learn effective strategies for negotiating, giving information on how to successfully negotiate with various audiences. Participants will be taught negotiation steps for success, learning how to strengthen skills and build “negotiation vocabulary,” as well as crucial negotiation strategies and components.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice negotiation techniques in a non-threatening environment in small group discussions, allowing hands-on experience practicing these skills with other managers.
