Negotiating and Influencing Skills

Course Details

Do your people know how to achieve positive outcomes from negotiating?

Many people think the point of a negotiation is to come away with as much as they can, at the expense of the other party. This one day negotiating and influencing course shows how that some people lack the skills or assertiveness needed to ensure a positive outcome for themselves and the other party.

In fact, negotiating is mostly about achieving a win-win scenario and working towards acceptable outcomes for all – where some compromise may be required but ideally, where working together actually creates ‘a bigger pie’ for us all to have a share in.

This one day negotiating and influencing course shows you how to become a more skilful negotiator without the need to for the other party to feel like they have lost.
