Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
A study conducted by Harris Interactive indicated that 90 percent of adults experience stress or anxiety during the holidays, right at year’s end when pressures are building for most businesses.
To help manage that stress, Cheetah Learning has announced its theme for December is “Reduce Workplace Conflict.”
As part of that effort, Cheetah is offering a free “Negotiation Tip Sheet,” available by filling out a form at http://www.CheetahLearning.com. Other free offerings include: PMP Exam Prep SmartStart Guide, PMP Practice Exam, 2 PDU Skills Assessment Course, and the Getting Started with PM Guide, along with “great deals” on Professional Development Units (PDUs).
The “Negotiation Tip Sheet” uses easy-to-understand theatrical terminology such as “Cast of Characters,” “Set the Stage” and “Know the Plot” to convey its points, not an altogether surprising decision since Shakespeare wrote: “All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
It’s all part of “The Cheetah Way,” Project Management done correctly, an effort to make businesses more productive and efficient. Among its key thoughts, “Kick off a project the right way from the beginning.”
Fitting right in with that approach is “Cheetah Negotiations, How to Get What You Want, Fast,” published by MAKLAF Press, ISBN-10: 0-9761749-2-8, and available at http://www.cheetahstore.com. The authors are Michelle LaBrosse and Linda Lansky.
LaBrosse is CEO and founder of Cheetah, Project Management Institute’s 2008 Provider of the Year. LaBrosse was also named one of the top 25 most influential woman in Project Management worldwide by the Project Management Institute.
The book is one of the core teaching tools in Cheetah’s course “Effective Negotiations Skills for Project Managers.” Among its learning objectives:
“Know your innate negotiating strengths and how to leverage those based on the strengths and weaknesses of those with whom you're negotiating.”
“Know how to set the stage for a successful negotiation.”
“Be able to navigate through the twists in turns common in many negotiations to bring it to a successful resolution.”
“Understand the contractual elements used to solidify agreements arrived at in negotiations.”
