Recommendations for courses in Negotiation
I am working towards becoming an Program Manager with my corporation. Many executives have suggested the one area I lack at the moment is in negotiating so I am looking to improve in that area. Any suggestions on courses would be truly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

working for IBM; I attended a good negotiation class by Huthwaite some years ago.

More than negotiation, no matter I have the opportunity to attend to Harvard courses in the matter with people like William Ury, what helps me a lot were sales method related courses like Solution Selling, LAMP, Power Base Selling. I am not a seller but I was involved because I was in charge of pre sales.
