Develop Your Core Negotiating And Influencing Skills

Negotiation: the discussion between two or more parties aimed at reaching an agreement. Whilst the definition is simple enough, the real-life practicality of negotiating is often not so easy.

Yet, this is a skill that we must use everyday of our lives, and not just in business either; negotiating is as important to closing that high-value business deal as it is to maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner, or getting the kids to help around the house.

Nonetheless, given how often we rely on our ability to negotiate, very few people master it as a skill. In business, this can lead to deal-ending obstacles being left unresolved, such as conflicting interests or competing agendas, despite these being entirely fixable problems.

As such, we created this one-day negotiation course in London (or online or at your offices) to teach you the skills you’ll need for every potential phase of a negotiation – resulting in a higher level of self-confidence and more win-win business agreements.

Negotiating is a key aspect of life and business. Significantly improve your ability to influence and control the process.
