Graduate Negotiation Training

Soft skills are essential for young professionals, especially amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak. Graduate and Apprenticeship programmes play a crucial role in supporting the development of these skills. However, using negotiation skills stands out for encompassing a variety of soft skills such as communication, empathy, adaptability, and problem-solving. We focus on practicing negotiation skills which not only enhances these abilities but also fosters resilience and confidence, making it perhaps the most effective method for developing soft skills in today's uncertain landscape.

What does each session entail?

S1: Negotiation Introduction

'New' can be uncomfortable and when it comes to practicing negotiation skills for the first time there will be many anxieties at play.

This session is about making the teams comfortable with practicing negotiations with others and introduces the use of Negotiation CardsÂź as a means to practice using one controlled variable.

S2: Practice with Purpose

Each and every one of us negotiates but we very rarely understand what it is that we're doing. This session introduces negotiation tactics in a non-theoretical but practical approach.

Delegates have access to a number of key negotiation tactics in advance of the session and will then attempt to “practice with purpose” a tactic during their negotiation.

S3: Observation Skills

We often fail to articulate the negotiation “story” and in this session we introduce methods of recording observations and use these observations to deliver peer-to-peer feedback.

This form of Observation will elevate your teams ability to impact the value of any negotiation.

S4: Multi-Variable Negotiations

Negotiations can be complex, and this session introduces multi-variable Negotiation CardsŸ for challenging negotiations.

Additional techniques are shown for recording the movement in a negotiation and how preparation is critical to negotiation success.

S5: Negotiation Preparation

Getting prepared for a negotiation can make a huge difference, but we often lack the time and experience to do so.

The purpose of this practice session is to identify the 2 types of preparation and show how to prepare and practice so that they become easier to prepare on a routine basis, and so give you the best chance to make preparation a success.

S6: Rejections in Negotiations

Despite being part of the negotiation process, rejection can also be emotionally challenging, leading to mistakes in judgement.

In this session, we explore two critical rejection forms and practice them so that we can gain a stronger understanding of rejection.

S7: Team Roles

A team negotiation is one of the most underutilised forms of negotiation.

Having a structured and uniformed team can make a huge difference in the performance of the individuals and the company's results. As well as building commercial resilience, it is also a useful tool for sharing best practices across different teams members.

S8: Team Negotiations

In addition to improving the team's ability to deliver outstanding results, practicing specific negotiation roles provides individuals with an opportunity to further enhance their personal abilities.

Team morale and team development can be transformed by problem solving, observation, and managing complexity in team negotiations.

The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers

Each year The Times publishes its Top 100 Graduate Employees which takes into account interviews with thousands of students who are asked to identify the employer they feel offers the best opportunities for graduates.

Many students will use the "employer proposition" such as the quality of the graduate training and development an employer offers to recognise the value of the scheme.

A company's brand name will mean a great deal but reputations can be eroded quickly if the experience doesn't live up to the promise.

The critical need for comprehensive training initiatives within Graduate Schemes, shows how they serve as catalysts for attracting, nurturing, and retaining top-tier talent within businesses.
