We often think negotiation is something only managers or experts do, but in reality we are all negotiating on a regular basis. Negotiation is just trying to come to an agreement with someone when you initially wanted different outcomes or had different ideas. This can apply when you are buying or selling, but also when you are talking about workload, or a pay rise with your boss, or if you’re buying a car. It is important to recognise it and plan a negotiation before you get stuck in. This gives you a clear advantage in fulfilling your objectives.
This programme is designed for those who need to negotiate effectively with colleagues, suppliers and Customers. The programme concentrates on strategies in which both parties can win.
The focus of the training will be practical techniques, syndicate work and role play. Course members are asked to practice their skills on examples of negotiations they become involved in.
By the end of the programme you will understand:
