Course Description

BUS 275 Creative Negotiating

Conflicts occur between management and labour, buyer and seller, between colleagues, and frequently, between managers in the same organization. Managers and employees may compete for financial and human resources; they may be in conflict over the policies and goals of the organization; or who has the authority to make decisions.
