Why book this course?

Recent research states that the process of modern negotiation can involve anything up to seven people, from key decision makers to finance to procurement. Successfully engaging with all of them means having a broad set of communication skills, and knowing when and how to say ‘no’.

The course covers the fundamentals of successful sales negotiations - when to negotiate, key principles behind the process and how to deal with tactics or power play. It also looks at negotiation 'types', learning to say 'no' and handling objections. Practical advice combines with theory and practice to create a powerful and productive day.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for salespeople or other negotiators looking to bolster their negotiation skills, either face to face or by telephone. 

You’ll gain techniques and expertise that will give you extra confidence in negotiations, allowing you to steer conversations and avoid confrontation.

What content will the course cover?

  • What is negotiation  – understanding the fundamental principles

  • The skills and techniques involved in professional negotiation

  • Negotiation styles – what type of negotiator are you?

  • The four stages of negotiation

  • Identifying trading components

  • The balance of power and maximising ‘neutral’

  • Understanding how to communicate confidently and assertively

  • Gaining the desired outcome to achieve sustainable results

  • Action plan for success.

What will I get out of the training?

You’ll gain a better understanding of the skills needed to manage negotiations, whether it's a simple one-to-one discussion or a lengthy and complex process. We’ll teach you techniques to achieve greater balance in negotiations, creating high quality interactions that build relationships and support good business. By the end, you’ll have an arsenal of tools to achieve win-win outcomes, where everyone involved feels satisfied and valued.
