Course description

Become a Powerful Negotiator (Public Course)

At this multi-day workshop you will learn how to succeed when negotiating. You will be able to handle even the toughest negotiators. Now available Live Online.

You negotiate every day with customers, suppliers, co-workers, business associates and family. You want results in your negotiations but you don’t want to fall into the destructive patterns that could damage what could be constructive relationships.

You need to make your negotiations effective by figuring out what motivates the other side and knowing when to put an offer on the table. To become a powerful negotiator, you need the skills to handle difficult people and protect yourself from having someone take advantage of you.

How do you get others to “buy-in”? How can you avoid creating long-term problems when you negotiate? How can you avoid being taken advantage of in negotiations without creating an impasse? The negotiation workshop will help you succeed where others fail by giving you practical skills that will work in the real world.

At the three-day Become a Powerful Negotiator Workshop, you will learn how to get results in negotiations. The skills you learn at the workshop are based on the theory of Principled Negotiation. Principled Negotiation as set out in the best-selling book, Getting to Yes, written by Harvard Professor Roger Fisher, William Ury, and Bruce Patton.

Who should attend?

The Become a Powerful Negotiator Workshop is designed for anyone who negotiates at work or at home including: executives, managers, professionals, salespeople, procurement managers, buyers, real estate agents, property managers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, accountants, engineers, health care professionals, educators, customer service representatives, and labour relations specialists.
