Master Professional Skills with Leading Business Negotiation Courses

Professional skills are enhanced by regular practice since regular practice reinforces learning and enhances retention. Research has shown that a skill acquired in a single session can diminish over time if not practised consistently. Our training is unique because we provide frequent, short practice sessions crucial to maintaining proficiency. Your teams can practice little and often, solidifying their team skills and achieving mastery to ensure long-term success and continuous improvement.

Negotiation Skills In Action...

Team Skills

Teams adept at negotiation demonstrate resilience, adaptability, and commitment to shared success. That's because effective teamwork depends on enabling collaboration and alignment toward common goals and a team's ability to navigate conflict in a constructive manner can be a strength.

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholders rely on negotiators for their knowledge of complex discussions, power dynamics, overcoming obstacles, and brokering beneficial deals.  Negotiators who are effective understand stakeholder perspectives, balance those discussions, and manage these dynamics, making this skill crucial to company success.

Problem Solving

Problem-solving skills enable professionals to deal with complex challenges and mitigate risks, and negotiation is a crucial part of the process. A good negotiator is your best problem solver because they can cultivate an environment of continuous improvement through their ability to bridge gaps, innovate, and drive business success.

Risk Reduction

In business, negotiation skills are instrumental in reducing risks by aiding transparent communication and managing expectations when finding the right solutions. Any professional adept at negotiation employs risk-reduction strategies to negotiate contracts, resolve disputes, and mitigate uncertainties. They can help businesses remain stable and sustainable in an ever-changing business environment.

Negotiation Strategy

In any business, bureaucracy can be extremely frustrating. But skilled negotiators can cut through red tape, streamline workflows, and remove unnecessary barriers. Any professional skilled in negotiation will anticipate challenges so that they can negotiate preventative measures and develop contingency plans, enabling smoother operations and fewer disruptions.

Profitability

Professionals proficient in negotiation are known for their abilities to optimise processes and leverage resources effectively. They are capable of collaborating effectively with partners, vendors, and internal teams to explore new ideas, secure resources, and develop innovative products. These skills can also be applied to understanding and meeting customer needs, as well as resolving conflicts. All of which can increase profitability and business satisfaction.

What does each session entail?

S1: Negotiation Introduction

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

This session is about making the teams comfortable with practising negotiations with others and introduces the use of Negotiation Cards¬ģ 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 ‚Äúpractice with purpose‚ÄĚ a tactic during their negotiation.

S3: Observation Skills

We often fail to articulate the negotiation ‚Äústory‚ÄĚ, 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 team's ability to impact the value of any negotiation.

S4: Multi-Variable Negotiations

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

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

Negotiation Strategy

Negotiation strategy and planning are essential for achieving desired outcomes. Through meticulous preparation, setting clear objectives, and anticipating potential challenges, negotiators can navigate the complexities effectively. It takes skill and practice to develop a well-defined strategy. To take your negotiation journey to the next level, create your own Negotiation Cards to prepare for real business negotiations. This will help your organisation leverage its strengths and maximise value.

S5: Negotiation Preparation

Preparing for negotiation can make a huge difference, but we often lack the time and experience.

The purpose of this practice session is to identify the two 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 to gain a stronger understanding of rejection.

S7: Bespoke Negotiation Card

In this session, we will use our Job Knowledge to create bespoke Negotiation Cards that will be used in negotiation practice.

As a result of this activity, we can consider both sides' needs and interests to begin addressing them in the negotiation process.

S8: Bespoke Negotiations

This session will utilise the Negotiation Cards we developed in Session 7 to practice specific real-world negotiations to improve our practical understanding of negotiation practice and preparation.

It is through this type of negotiation practice that theory and practice can be brought together in a way that prepares individuals for real-world negotiations.
