The whole program was very well put-together, from the registration process to the follow up with the Stitt Feld Handy Group staff. I liked the use of multiple instructors and coaches during the day – all were excellent! The materials were useful and thought provoking. I enjoyed the rigor and the challenge of the cases. Thanks for a great session; it was definitely time well spent!

Finally, a course with great appreciation for a variety of life and professional situations. Very good use of role plays and practical information on negotiating. Working through the process of negotiations is top notch.

I had attended other workshops on Negotiation skills but found this one to provide more learning opportunities and chances to participate in a supportive environment.

The depth of training and explanations were very good. Often, course content is superficial but this was not the case in the Becoming and Powerful Negotiator Workshop. I liked that the practical case studies had clearly thought-out objectives.
Daniel Stechey, Canadian Aquaculture Systems Incorporated, Cobourg, ON, Canada
The workshop opened my eyes and made me realize the different way negotiations could be handled, the different techniques used and the possibilities of different negotiating situations. The instructors shared a great deal of knowledge and understanding of negotiations and passed along the information in very strategic timeframe, which was beneficial to all.

It was interactive, engaging, educational, fun and more informative that I thought 3 days would be! I really appreciated the experiential approach – I made mistakes, learned, practiced, and improved. Thank you very much!

The learning curve was steep, but the internalization of the concepts was rapid and effective. The role-plays and learning outcomes were fascinating. Instructors were excellent. All 3 were clearly highly knowledgeable, presented material effectively and with a balance of wisdom and humour. Thank you, and great job.

Interactive format excellent for learning. Feel like I have seen improvement in my skills from Day 1 – Day 3.
Ken Bolt, Wawanesa Insurance, Winnipeg, MB, Canada
I really felt that this course introduces and then builds upon the concepts and allowed me to put those skills into practice. I also really liked the fact that there were multiple instructors with very different teaching styles. They shared many useful stories to help illustrate the concepts.
