Negotiation for a MORE CONNECTED and successful life.
Leaders in any field must be able to manage differences, build relationships, and negotiate effectively. These interpersonal skills are also essential for navigating the challenges of adolescence and young adulthood. We develop patterns of communication over a lifetime of experience, but conflict management, relationship building and negotiation skills can be taught and practiced. By helping girls and young women build these skills today, we will help them become the healthy and confident leaders of tomorrow.
