About the course
More and more, managers and leaders are required to work cross-organisationally and cross-culturally, and it’s not always easy. Communicating and negotiating in a global business context means considering a range of factors, including cultural diversity, time and budget constraints, and differing personalities and agendas.
Influential leaders communicate and negotiate with self-awareness. They understand their influential self – their emotional style, how to self-regulate their emotions, and how to integrate their own emotions and behaviours when they negotiate. Successful negotiators are aware of their own negotiation style, and use this to plan and prepare negotiations, or to adapt their behaviours to suit a changing negotiation dynamic.
Optimising Influence in Negotiation focuses on recognising and developing your individual negotiation style by considering your physiological and emotional responses. During the course, you will gain insights into the value of understanding other people’s behaviour styles and learn how to leverage their strengths and capitalise on their weaknesses. You will also learn how to plan and prepare a logical and structured approach to negotiation.
