Business Negotiation Skills
Negotiation is a key work and life skill. It takes place with external companies and customers as well as internally with peers, bosses and project teams. Getting better results in terms of timelines, price or quality all contribute to bottom line profitability. This course will enable participants to get the best results using a persuasive but collaborative negotiation style.
- Plan effectively, get the best results and anticipate the other side’s position.
- Open a negotiation effectively to set the right tone.
- Understand your requirements and those of the other party to assess where the best deals can be done.
- Receive and respond to proposals, until an acceptable solution to both parties has been found.
- Handle attempts to win unwarranted concessions and keep the negotiation going when a deadlock is possible.
- Close a negotiation effectively.
