With techniques such as these:
- How to deal with multiple speakers?
- How to create an optimal team?
- How do you recognize “types of power”, how the “carers” and how do you keep them happy?
- How do you negotiate expediently? eg treat people and problems separately. Do not negotiate positions but interests etc.
- How can the different types best be motivated?
- And finally there is a pragmatic quick course “Time Management”.
