Negotiating for Results (Batch 191)

The art of Negotiating has been thought of as a skill reserved only for those doing sales or procurement. However, the truth is that everyone negotiates more than we make think we do. We negotiate with our bosses, our colleagues, our staff, and pretty much everyone we work with. We negotiate because we need to drive results. This one-day course is founded upon the concept of principles-based negotiations and helps the participant learn the skill and art of negotiations through actual hands-on exercises in negotiating. Participants are immersed in various simulation activities that mimic various negotiation scenarios that professionals deal with on a regular basis.

At the end of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe why negotiations is both a skill and an art
  • Apply the proper method of negotiating to people they interact with
  • Apply and respond to various negotiation techniques taught in this course
