Negotiation Skills


Our Negotiation Skills training course is aimed at those with some negotiation experience. Becoming a great negotiator requires a unique combination of skills; the ‘hard’ commercial processes that can be learned and practiced; what is said and how to say it. Then there are the soft skills: the paralinguistic and non-verbal techniques, the subtle nuances that can help you read the person across the table and gain a real edge. Negotiation Skills training teaches both sets of skills, and how to blend them, creating winning negotiations that build long-lasting and profitable relationships.

Participants learn:

  • The importance of preparation
  • Setting goals and objectives
  • Preparing yourself
  • The value of the relationship
  • Defining the bargaining arena
  • Understanding their needs
  • Knowing when to walk away
  • Casting and roles for the team
  • Asking the right questions
  • Signalling and proposing
  • Re-framing, bargaining and closing


1-2 days
