Professional Development

When members are given the opportunity to develop their professional skills, they will appreciate the value of the society. The University teaches these skills, but your members rarely get the chance to practice them and that's where you can differentiate your society from all the other society options.

Grow Your Society

Collaboration among members will enhance your members' interpersonal skills, promote innovation within your Society, and create a supportive culture. Which means any society member seeking a network of friends and colleagues will benefit from these negotiation skills courses.

Problem Solving Skills

There is a fundamental element to the success of any endeavour in our business or personal lives: the ability to identify, analyse, and solve complex problems. The ability to find solutions to problems is directly related to negotiation, and our negotiation courses are designed to build the ability of your members to think critically and resourcefully.

Competition Preparation

There are many student negotiation competitions available, but if you want to be successful, you need to practice. All negotiation champions practice their negotiation skills, and this is at the heart of the courses we provide.

Communication Skills

It is essential to have excellent communication skills during negotiations, whether it is verbal or non-verbal, oral or written, to collaborate with colleagues, present ideas, and build relationships.

Critical Thinking Skills

You can help your student society members develop critical thinking abilities through negotiation courses, which will enable them to evaluate information, make sound judgments, and come up with creative solutions to complex challenges, which will add value to them personally as well as your society at large.

Module 1: Master Negotiation Skills

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 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 teams 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.

Module 2: Master Team Negotiations

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.
