Negotiation Skills

1 or 1.5 Day Course on the Art of Negotiation, Bargaining and Haggling skills

Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

"Negotiation in the classic diplomatic sense assumes parties are more anxious to agree than to disagree"

Dean Acheson

Negotiation is a skill that we use almost every day. However, negotiation is also one of those skills that everyone learns on the job. From early age, kids learn how to negotiate with their parents over what they want and enhance this skill as they learn from their success. However, as we grow we seem to lose that skill and become less successful in getting exactly what we want. Somehow our perspective changes and we develop bad habits. Unfortunately, most people are not trained systematically on negotiations even though this skill can be quite beneficial to them in both their personal and professional lives.

 

This course covers a wide range of topics such as negotiation strategy, game theory, psychological tactics, human emotional states, bargaining and so on which prepares delegates for a variety of situations that require negotiation. Case studies and scenarios such as business to business negotiations, sales scenarios and product presentations are provided along with slides, animations and illustrations that better help to show how bargaining tactics are played out. Real world negotiation examples are examined in detail and delegates are then asked to participate in similar setups to use the negotiation principles discussed in the course. Comprehensive step-by-step instructions are provided for trainers to help delegates understand the core principles of negotiation and monitor their progress through practicals.

Designed with case studies and exercises from the outset to help delegates master the negotiation skills during the course as quickly as possible

The course also contains a number of optional exercises which along with the broad content provided makes it easy to extend the course to 1.5 days if necessary. Instructions on this are provided in the guidelines for trainers included in the pack to pace the course correctly.

The Philosophy Behind Negotiation Skills Training Course

We constantly research a variety of fields such as psychology, game theory, body language, influence and real-life negotiations to enhance this course

Negotiation is a practical skill and as a result the best way to learn it is by practicing it. This course was designed from the outset to support hands-on training of this vital skill to maximise knowledge transfer and increase the retention rate of delegates so the skill is used correctly long after the course is delivered.

Negotiation Skills Training

To convince, sometimes all you need is serious eye contact!

At Skills Converged, we believe that one of the best ways to learn is by going through examples. Important negotiation principles in this course are always accompanied by examples as this makes it easier for delegates to understand the topic rather than just to be given a number of guidelines to read. Examples followed by exercises greatly help the delegates to immediately put what they learned into practice and test it out for themselves. This process helps delegates to memorise the process faster while it allows the trainer to easily teach the topic, monitor the delegates’ progress and provide feedback based on their specific performance. Since the skills are transferred through easy-to-follow logical step-by step guides, it is easy for the trainers to teach the topic and the delegates to learn them. This approach makes this course highly effective in teaching negotiation skills while also makes it easy for trainers to prepare themselves to deliver it.

We constantly re-examine the course based on feedback received from delegates and trainers to further streamline the process and increase the efficiency of the course.
