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 still collaborative, negotiation style.

Who should attend?

Are you someone who feels they have not negotiated the best terms as they felt the other party had better negotiation skills or who wants structure and run a high quality negotiation? Are you finding that negotiation is becoming a larger part of your role or finding yourself in negotiation with key stakeholders - either formally or informally? If so, this course will add great value to your negotiation skillset. No formal understanding is needed to attend this course.
