In business, negotiation skills are important in both informal day-to-day interactions and formal transactions such as negotiating conditions of sale, lease, service delivery, and other legal contracts. Good negotiations contribute significantly to business success, as they:
- Help you build better relationships
- Deliver lasting, quality solutions — rather than poor short-term solutions that do not satisfy the needs of either party
- Help you avoid future problems and conflicts
But not everyone knows how to be a good negotiator. In this workshop, we will focus on:
- Identifying your negotiation style
- Setting the right environment for negotiating
- Mirroring and labeling for connection
- Setting your goals and sticking to them
- Preparing your negotiation
As a result, you will walk out knowing how to set a clear goal and getting into your negotiation well prepared.
**Workshops attendance comes with free 1-month support
