Today’s educators seem to face an impossible task — that of priming their students for success in an increasingly dynamic, globalised, and unpredictable world. Technologies of today may be completely irrelevant within a decade, and the concept of a ‘safe’ industry or employment sector is now borderline laughable. Academic education will still continue to be critical for basic comprehension and navigation of this world, but it must be supplemented with practical life skills. Among these skills, the ability to negotiate with others and seize opportunities without sacrificing your ethics is simply unrivalled in value.
Envoy is built on years of experience in educating students, both in high school and university. We have ourselves excelled across multiple student extracurricular activities (notably Model UN, debating, and public speaking), and subsequently trained other students to find similar success. Across institutions, we have been overjoyed to find that students genuinely and passionately engage with our workshops; the pragmatism and universal applicability of negotiation training makes it an exciting subject for young adults, and a welcome break from more traditional study.
We believe that every student should have a solid grounding in negotiation, and especially the creation of win-win outcomes. It is a highly valuable skillset in any area of education (from getting along with others in the playground, to university group projects and interviews), and an essential skillset outside it (whether finding a new place to live, or scoring your first graduate job). Talk to us today about how we can help give your students a competitive edge with our negotiation workshops.
