And perhaps they are while in the midst of hammering out a new deal on behalf of their organizations. But when negotiating on their own behalf—especially when they are negotiating compensation for a new position—executives oftentimes stumble and don’t exit negotiations as the true winner.

The only way in which to earn the greatest rewards is to be the strongest negotiator you can be: know what you want, ask for it and get it. Our experts will show you how.
