Negotiation isn’t just about earning the salary that you want. It’s also about influencing decisions and growing relationships together. Negotiation skills are critical to finding employment, pursuing a promotion, striving for a raise in salary, or influencing colleagues or consumers to achieve new goals. But they can also help you position yourself as a vital member of a team. According to a recent survey* of members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, negotiation skills are among the most challenging leadership skills to develop – and about 40% of respondents indicated that increased negotiation skills could empower them to obtain more significant leadership roles. With guest experts Dr. Alison Fragale, Dr. Cindy Hasseberg, and Elizabeth Abbay discussing their strategies and stories of negotiation, this candid panel discussion is one that nutrition professionals can’t afford to miss!
