Negotiation skills

Overview

Many participants of the negotiation skills training come to the course thinking that the goal of negotiating is to gain the maximum benefit for themselves. We immediately ditch this assumption by presenting negotiating as a noble skill. The goal of utilizing that skill is to come to an agreement acceptable to both sides so that we can achieve long-term business relationships. By seeing negotiations in this new light, participants develop a skill that helps them reach high-quality deals in external and internal negotiations, as well as in their private and professional lives. The skills and tools the participants gain in the course guarantee maximum win-win scenarios when negotiating.

Target group
