Removing the Road Blocks – WEBINAR
Feb 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Removing the Road Blocks – Webinar

4 hours

Most managers and executives have a strong preference to have their sales associates participate in face to face negotiations. COVID-19 has created a paradigm shift. Research shows that those who negotiate online are less likely to gain a YES outcome. It’s partially because most negotiations contain two motivations, a cooperative element and a more obvious competitive element. Those mixed emotions often times produce tension. Virtual negotiations escalate the tension at a higher level due to an inability to “read” the person.

The good news is that there are practical steps that can be executed to improve the possibility of getting a YES response for the members of your team. During the workshop tactics which support achieving Winning Negotiations and Getting to Yes more consistently will be shared with the participants. The course content will include but not be limited to the following:

• Challenges to consider when conducting virtual negotiations

• Practical methods for success in a virtual negotiation

• Tactics to Remove Road Blocks associated with online negotiations and turn them into advantages

Positioning and Branding for Minority Businesses – Webinar – WEBINAR      
Apr 13 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 8 @ 8:30 pm

Positioning and Branding for Minority Businesses – Webinar

SB764– 22.5 hours
The goal of this nine-session course is to aid minority entrepreneurs in strengthening their competitive advantage by leveraging proven positioning and brand development strategies, as well as increasing awareness of opportunities for inclusion in supplier diversity programs. Intensity of competition is the driving force affecting the performance of every level of management today, whether it is a small retail outlet, a service firm, or a dominant multinational corporation. A business’ survival depends on how well its product or service is positioned to satisfy important customer needs; how it differentiates itself from competitors; and how well it builds consumer loyalty, market leadership, and profitable growth. This discipline of positioning and brand development is a must for minority business owners who face the challenge of growing their businesses while remaining competitive.

The nine-week class will be an interactive experience focused on teaching minority entrepreneurs how to leverage these times of uncertainty and opportunity to increase their business capacity, as well as help improve their brand identities and maximize resources.
