Business Negotiation Skills Course

Course Description

Negotiation is an important part of the competitive modern life. Whether we admit it or not, our success depends very much upon how competent we are in getting what we want both in business and personal relationships. A successful negotiator knows his or her limitations as well as the needs and limitations of others, so that when he or she begins to negotiate they remain focused on the possibilities and the opportunities rather than on the impractical terms or impossible demands. 

This programme of coaching addresses the challenges of negotiating through the medium of practice and presenting ourselves effectively. The outcomes of this programme include more confidence and the ability to plan, prepare and deliver negotiations according to some well-tried and tested principles.
