Wednesday 7 October 2020

This GRADskills workshop is particularly for research postgraduate students in all disciplines and any year of study. Five places will be held for taught postgraduate students. Do you find it difficult to make your views known to your supervisor? Do you have trouble saying “no” when others ask you to fit another task into an already over-crowded schedule? Try developing your assertiveness and communication skills to help with these and other situations. This workshop will enable you to negotiate easily and successfully. The situation might vary but the key skills involved in negotiating stay constant. The course will teach you how to get the best out of every situation and keep good will from everyone involved. The workshop aims to help you negotiate successfully verbally and in text, identify and present the logic of negotiation to others, anticipate, navigate and win through difficult conversations, have conflict-free negotiations, use strategies to achieve your short and long term objectives and attain self-assertiveness.
