INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATION SKILLS AUDIT CERTIFICATE COURSE
Duration: 4 Days
Attendees: Front line decision makers
Negotiation – everyone does it, but how well you do can be the difference between achieving the best outcome possible or simply reaching a compromise that satisfies no one. This is the only international program that critiques the skill level and competence of negotiators.
Business practitioners use negotiation on a daily basis irrespective of practice area, many with little or no education in this subject. The existing universal practice of the standard “haggling” negotiation often produces less than perfect outcome relative to results that could have been achieved. This can include risked or damaged relationships and the creation of frustrating and needless impasses.
This training program will:
Vastly increase your understanding of negotiation tactics and skills
Teach key techniques to effectively conduct complex and high level negotiations
Help you achieve the outcomes you want when negotiating
Improve professionalism in the use of negotiation by commercial users.
