Facilitator Speaker Writer Coach: I teach business professionals how to have authentic, connected conversations.

http://MelissaHereford.com 

My lifelong passion and the bulk of my career has been in negotiation training, a conversation skill that you're required to use daily. Despite using these skills to get your team aligned or get buy in on your ideas, negotiation remains at the top of the list for dreaded conversations.

Every single class I've taught, every sales person I've coached, and every customer I've worked with has agreed: these skills make your life better, help you understand what’s important to your peers, your boss, your co-workers, your spouse, your kids…and to YOU!

It’s through conversations that you decide what to study, where to live, find a job, meet new office mates, connect with mentors and allies, get promoted.

It’s through conversations that you fall in love, share your ideas, your hopes and dreams.

It’s through conversations that you find happiness or disappointment.

I founded Negotiate With Confidence to help you get what you ask for, learn how to be heard, and how to be a powerful leader.

And I facilitate programs for clients that support this goal with skills that align with my core mission of helping you have conversations that connect you.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
