What Will I Learn?
  • •tThe first goal of this course is to give you the tools to become a better negotiator, whatever your current skill level. How do you become more skillful in negotiating on purpose, or "by design"? Initially you need to become aware of all the major components in negotiating, and which others are using right now in dealing with you. By the end of the course, you will have all the tools needed to understand the negotiating process. The second goal of the course moves from your awareness to your skill improvement - but skill in negotiating is not “once and done”. Success in negotiating is an ongoing process, so that as you continually apply the tools you will become increasing skillful and effective. Prepare yourself to apply the negotiating words, phrases and situations needed to be a better consumer, have the skills when you need them, make deals happen, be more successful, all of which leads to your having more fun! When you apply the knowledge learned, share the process with a friend, share with the Facebook group and get feedback, and then continually practice to improve your game, you will become a competent and confident negotiator.

  • •tThis negotiating course includes a PowerPoint presentation plus separate audio, text, and graphic files. While the course is presented as lectures, it’s very important to increase skills through practice by actual role-playing. If you have a friend taking the course at the same time, you will both benefit from role-playing with each other and discussing the outcomes. In addition, a knowledgeable third party observer can be quite helpful in giving feedback about the level of skills used.

This course is about helping you become a more successful negotiator, in business and in life.

Throughout my recent thirty+ years in real estate, I have focused on providing high quality consulting services to all parties in a real estate transaction, whether to a first time home buyer or to experienced investors. My specialty has been centered on international and shared ownership properties. In all areas I offer a wealth of corporate and small business experience and a practical no-nonsense approach, thereby providing multiple strategies to save time and money for all parties in a transaction.

My specialties include written and verbal communication, problem solving, negotiation finesse, thoroughness of preparation, integrity in approach, and problem solving experience coupled with cutting edge thinking.

That hasn't changed over the years. Early in my working years and while on the Research Faculty of the Ohio State University, I created thirteen highly acclaimed books and resource materials to facilitate police officer effectiveness nationally in elementary school classrooms; this "Officer Friendly" curriculum was funded by the Sears Roebuck Foundation. In addition, throughout my years as an entrepreneur and small business owner, I have fostered the empowerment of women through practical education and sound advice based on experience. I was a founding member of the Atlanta Women's Network, on the Board of Directors of Women Business Owners of Atlanta, and one of the three first women members of the Board of Directors of Sales and Marketing Executives of Atlanta.

A savvy woman skillfully negotiating has an enormous impact - it raises the bar for every real world transaction.
