Business negotiations for professionals

Date: October 24 and 31 |Time: 09:00-17:00 | Place: Rixwell Elefant Hotel, Kalnciema Street 90 | Membership fees: 495 EUR + VAT

Intended for:

For business professionals:

  • who manage companies and projects, make deals, buy and sell products, services, ideas and themselves;

  • who want to improve their business negotiation results.



We negotiate daily, hourly in fact, to grow our business, satisfy our interests, and gain what we don't currently have by interacting with others.

Achieving these goals is not easy and is becoming increasingly difficult: the complexity and unpredictability of the business environment is growing, business models are becoming more complex and competition is more relentless. Often we come into contact with people whose conversation style is foreign to us, uncomfortable, even unacceptable.

How to significantly improve the results of business negotiations in this anxious time?


Looking for an answer to this challenge, a series of other questions arise: How to balance maximum benefits for yourself and relationships with partners? How to avoid making concessions on issues that are important to you? How to recognize the relevant information about the interests and needs of the parties? How to effectively negotiate with non-constructive partners who manipulate, lie and behave aggressively? How to effectively resolve conflict situations?

We will find the answers to these and other questions in the course "Business negotiations for professionals" by Daniel Pavlyutas.

Benefits of the course:

As a result of the course, negotiators will get:

  • a clear understanding of the main strategies and styles of negotiation;

  • the ability to proactively manage the course of negotiations in the desired direction;

  • the practice of using effective communication methods to influence partners;

  • recognize and neutralize various aggressive and manipulative tactics.

Course format:
