Negotiation Training

Bringing you one step closer to getting to ‘yes’ with your clients

What is Negotiation Training?

Negotiation training helps enable executives to get the upper-hand in everyday situations at work and in their personal lives when dealing with situations where there is an element of discussion before a deal is made. Especially in a corporate setting, negotiation training is meant to inculcate a mindset of avoiding zero-sum games and creating trusting relationships to attain win-win agreements in various situations and scenarios.

Why Negotiation Training?

As the adage goes: ‘you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate’. In corporate environments the ability to negotiate is even more sought after as it enables executives in areas such as deal-making, meandering general social settings and even has benefits for salespeople too. For example, a salary.com survey found that 87% of people are either sometimes or always apprehensive about salary negotiations. They also found 32% to be fearful of negotiating. By having executives undergo negotiation training, they’ll be equipped with techniques and methods to get what they want from negotiations, but at the same time avoid looking pushy and domineering.
