Training Course Innovation
In 2022, RED BEAR continued to innovate and meet the dynamic needs of the global marketplace by introducing Virtual Instructor-Led Training courses. RED BEAR’s Virtual Instructor-Led Training addresses the growing number of threats and obstacles facing businesses today like travel restrictions, budget constraints, distributed teams, and economic uncertainty. In order to maintain forward progress, businesses need flexibility to adapt and overcome these obstacles.
RED BEAR also introduced a new Cross-Cultural Negotiation™ course, a course that addresses that the basis of successful international negotiations begins with an understanding that negotiations are a conversation aimed at reaching an agreement and different cultures reach agreements in different ways. Cross-Cultural Negotiation provides participants with practical insights and equips them with skills, tools, and behaviors to have those conversations.
“RED BEAR’s core training and negotiation philosophy are timeless, and we continue to update RED BEAR’s training content, so our customers receive negotiation training that is always relevant, timely, and impactful,” said Brandon Wilson, RED BEAR Negotiation Director of Client Engagement. “Our Virtual Instructor-Led Training and Cross-Cultural Negotiation courses are just some of the enhancements we made in 2022. We’ll continue to advance and deliver life-changing negotiation training courses in 2023 and beyond.”
