Program overview

The trend

Working with clients around the world, we see organizations face three scenarios:

  1. Employees who don’t negotiate

  2. Team members who want to negotiate and need help developing negotiating skills

  3. Employees who are good at negotiating, but want to get better

The solution is to provide team members with the training, tools and techniques to help them become skilled at negotiation.      

Program flow

In many organizations there are employees and team members who do not know how to negotiate or do not like negotiating because they feel uncomfortable in negotiating situations. Unfortunately, this ends up costing a company a lot of time, money and effort, because people do not know how to negotiate effectively. This program teaches people the tools and techniques to become an effective negotiator in an organization.
