Developing Your Negotiation Skills

Course Summary

The ability to negotiate is crucial to business success today. Yet few of us are armed with the confidence, the skills or the qualities required for successful negotiation.

There is a belief that people are either good or bad at negotiation and little can be done to change that. There is also the belief that negotiation is an art rather than a science, and as a result people rely on gut instinct or intuition when they negotiate. Both these beliefs are myths.

This one-day course provides a clear, simple and effective approach and will equip participants with the tools and techniques to be more effective as a negotiator.
