High-Performing Negotiator Mindset

Success and survival aren't the same mindsets. Make sure you are prepared for success.

The crux of how well you perform in a negotiation isn't your level of research about your counterpart or your ability to persuade them, it all starts with your mindset. If you aren't in the right mindset, you're setting yourself up for less than optimal results.

In this half-hour course, you'll learn the Black Swan hack for getting into a high-performing negotiation mindset. In this course, you'll learn how to get into the CAVIAAR™ mindset. CAVIAAR is the acronym you need to build your confidence and mental flexibility needed to perform at your best. This is essential to setting the stage before you walk into any negotiation.

Don't let your skills fall flat, get in the mindset for success!
