Managers of organisations, staff, marketing, finance, etc., as well as purchasers
who want to improve their ability to negotiate better terms.
Every day we negotiate. We agree the terms of the contract with the supplier or customer. With the partner, we explain the job allocation and the deliverable forms. We are talking to the employee about the salary paid and with the employer about received one.
Sometimes after the negotiations we can be happy: we have achieved the best possible outcome and even more! But other times, after the talks, it doesn't make sense – we've been divided! Better terms, if not exactly 'due', then surely achievable!
How to ensure that the rational basis for this feeling is as sparse as possible?
Good news: the frequency of such situations can be significantly reduced! The court, on the way to a solution, must answer more nuanced questions. What outcome of the negotiations can we call optimal? What should I think about in preparation for negotiations? How to get and hold a negotiating initiative? How do I estimate the potential benefits of negotiations? How to strengthen or fake confidence? What can we learn from other cultures about negotiating? How does the negotiating position affect negotiating tactics? How do different techniques systematically apply and avoid adversary tactics?
We will find answers to these and other questions in the “Business Negotiations” workshop.
Improved ability to reach an appropriate agreement through:
- answers to practical questions about real business situations;
- a deeper understanding of the negotiating partner's thinking;
- practical instruments which can be used on the same day;
- the skills of negotiating and not accepting the first offer.
