Negotiating skills are crucial to business success and are an important part of most managers’ professional lives. Like most other skills, the ability to perform in negotiations is determined by some combination of natural ability, experience and formal training. Yet most managers have received little or no negotiation training.
This course provides an intensive, two-day introduction to negotiation analysis and practice. We use negotiation simulations, case studies and group discussion to highlight practical applications of the issues discussed. By the end of the course, participants will have a conceptual framework which will help them turn their own negotiating experience into expertise.
Who should attend?
This course will be beneficial to anyone whose work involves negotiating with others. Those who seek to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of their own negotiation style and strategic habits, improve their own negotiation performance and enhance the quality of their negotiated settlements will benefit from this course.
