Negotiation Skills

What do the world’s top negotiators do? At what level do my own skills relate to theirs?

Negotiation skills – the training focuses on providing participants with the skills and tools to effectively complete the negotiation phase at the end of the sales process. Based on our unique research, we have identified three elements of effective negotiation (Figure) that are thoroughly reviewed during the training.

As with other skills-related trainings, the core of the Negotiation Skills training is exercises and the objective feedback it provides. Participants prepare and plan for commercial negotiation in teams. To help with this preparation and planning, during the training, they have been introduced to the tools related to the different stages of the negotiation process. They will be able to test these tools in the context of this negotiation exercise. The negotiation exercise itself and its objective analysis allow participants to benchmark their own negotiation skills against the world’s top negotiators. With the help of this feedback, the participants are able to create a concrete plan for themselves to further develop their negotiation skills.

Who are the trainings for?

Negotiation skills – the training is suitable for anyone who participates in negotiations in their work, either as a chief negotiator or as a member of a team. These can be negotiations within the company or with third parties in both sales and purchasing functions.

The needs of companies vary and that is why we often tailor this training for each company.
