Successful Negotiation Skills

Duration: 1 day

Course Code: SUCNEG

Course Aims:

Moving from conflict to a win-win situation

If you struggle to get what you want from people whose help you need but over whom you have little direct authority, you may need to brush up your ‘win-win’ negotiation skills. Successful negotiation helps you to resolve situations where what you want conflicts with what someone else wants. In a win-win situation, you find a solution that is acceptable to both parties, creating a positive feeling all round.

Course Pre-requisites:

This programme is for you if you are not getting the positive outcomes you want from your negotiations with colleagues or clients. You will look at ways to avoid forcing a decision as success becomes more important than winning.

Course Objectives:

On completion of this course delegates will be able to:

Use ‘principled negotiation’ to ensure outcomes are win-win
Plan and prepare for negotiations in a systematic but flexible way
Structure the face-to-face phase so as to maintain control
Apply a trading formula to negotiation
