Course Description
Minute for minute, you never make more money than when you’re negotiating. Poorly handled negotiations can add up to detrimental costs for an organization.

The MarketWatch Centre for Negotiation estimates that on average, negotiators can lose up to 42% of the potential value of a negotiated deal. Most managers go into a negotiation unprepared and unaware of the process, which is a critical factor on whether or not a negotiation ends in a success or failure. In this course, you will learn to handle a negotiation by understanding the four main phases of a negotiation, as well as how to focus your actions for each stage around the three main negotiation themes of topic, relationship, and style. You will gain an understanding of your personal negotiation development areas, where your strengths and weaknesses are, and how to become a powerful and persuasive negotiator.

Upon successful completion of The Art Negotiation, you will:
  • understand the phases of negotiation.
  • increase your negotiation success rates and improve your confidence.
  • increase revenue growth from better negotiated deals.
  • know how to change your approach depending on the context of the negotiation.
  • obtain a Recognition of Participation certificate.
