Opposition Management – September 16 at 4 p.m. ET

Opposition management – the art of keeping your competition and opponents off guard and playing defense – is one of the new additions to our Planning to Win™ tool. Even if you don’t think you have opposition, a little research will likely unveil someone who would argue for a different approach or solution to your issue. Knowing as much as you can about who is working against you, and having a good plan for dealing with them, can mean the difference between winning and losing.

Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET for a complimentary Planning to Win webinar on opposition management with special guest John Passacantando, veteran campaign expert and former executive director of Greenpeace USA. Register here.

“This truly is the gold standard of executive training.  I have benefited greatly.”
