Negotiating to Win

  • Communication & Interpersonal Skills
  • Course Code: 32513

Gain the skills, insights and competencies required in all negotiations - in every industry - at every level.

Whether it’s allocating resources for a project, funding a new initiative or establishing a supply chain for a new product or service, negotiation is at the heart of the process. But few people understand the structure, techniques and approaches available to them as they seek to positively influence an outcome. This hands-on seminar gives you a step-by-step guide to effective negotiation. You must identify the problem, understand it from the other’s perspective, generate alternative solutions and select a solution that benefits both sides. All parties need each other to achieve their goals. Negotiation focuses on solving the problem and closing the gap between what both parties want.

    Nellie was an incredibly engaging facilitator who was knowledgeable in the subject area, and was able to share her vast experiences with us in a way that resonated. She is a phenomenal communicator, and my hope is that her sessions will be recorded at some point for reference over and over again.
