No matter what you do, negotiation will probably be involved. Whether you’re applying for a job, hiring freelance staff for a shoot, negotiating a distribution deal, or getting ships so your Khalasar can cross the Narrow Sea and reclaim your kingdom, you’ll be negotiating. Because of certain reality TV “business” men, there is a perception that negotiations have to be aggressive and confrontational. In truth, negotiations are more successful when approached as a collaborative effort. This workshop will cover some negotiation basics to help you perceive your own value and the needs of your negotiation partners in order to enter each negotiation with confidence. The ideas will be supported with clips from Arrested Development, Silicon Valley, and a few other of Steven’s favorite shows.
