World-Renowned Negotiating Coach

 

Hi, I'm Jim Thomas. Welcome to Common Ground Seminars. 

Did you know that negotiation skills are more essential than ever before? 

In our global economy, it’s essential that you sharpen your negotiation skills to give your organization the edge it needs to not only profit but survive. This is especially true in today’s changing economy.

Through our fresh, bold approach, you’ll learn potent techniques to help you navigate through the toughest negotiations. And, because we customize our presentations, you'll get immediate, measurable results.

Unlike our Competitors:

  • We customize our training with interviews from your key employees,
  • Develop personalized case studies, and
  • Conduct sessions that resonate with your attendees. 

Don't waste your money (and your staff's time) on "run-of-the-mill," standardized negotiation training. 

Our Graduates:

  • Negotiate more effectively than our competitors' clients,  
  • They achieve negotiating proficiency right out of class, and
  • They maintain their skills longer.  

 

Plus, Negotiate to Win Training is Guaranteed.

If you don’t recover the cost of your Negotiate to Win Workshop through more effective negotiating within just two weeks, and if each of your attendees doesn’t recover at least 5 times the cost of attendance through more effective negotiating within one year, we'll refund your money. 

 

Where else are you guaranteed a 500% annual return on your training investment?
