Product Description

Professional Negotiation Skills

Professional negotiation skills are vital. No other form of training has such an immediately measurable impact on the bottom line. From simple price challenges to important commercial agreements, negotiation is a major factor in profitability.

 

This powerful two-day negotiation skills training is about commercial negotiating skills. Whilst it is designed for sales people, sales managers and key account executives it is equally suitable for any executive involved with negotiating WIN-WIN outcomes.

 

The content of our negotiation skills course clearly defines the core of negotiation as ‘both move’.

 

If we have to move towards the other party, we must insist they move towards us as well. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is given away free.

 

The highly interactive programme shows you how to achieve this whilst leaving the other party satisfied with the outcome.

 

CD Pack – On this negotiation skills course each participant is issued with a set of 2 CDs which acts as a permanent reminder and précis of the training material.

 

“Excellent. Fantastic enthusiasm and very well delivered. I enjoyed this course very much indeed.” CJ, Business Development Manager, Prosonix
