- A desire to learn
Negotiation is everywhere – in our private and professional jobs, we sometimes negotiate without even knowing it. As sociable beings, negotiation is part and parcel of the way humans interact, so it’s well worth mastering.
Using tried and tested techniques, this course will give both clarity and efficiency to the way you go about negotiating. Not only will you learn how to structure a negotiation correctly, but you will also be taught about the concept of collaborative negotiation, which hinges on understanding the other person’s feelings and viewpoints.
The first steps of the course will focus on perfecting your negotiation strategy. This will involve an appreciation of the ‘power of variables’. Within this section, you will be taught exciting new concepts such as ‘the WIN matrix’ and ‘the 4 Ps’, all common principles of negotiation that will have you haggling and bargaining like the very best!
The middle of the course will be focused on the concept of discussion. There are a lot of different exercises within this section to fully solidify your understanding of how to manoeuvre a negotiation in the direction you want it to go. By putting this together, you will then know how to create a discussion agreement statement – an excellent tool that gets you exactly what you want during the negotiation process.
As well as focusing on other negotiation phases and tricks, examples including proposing and agreeing, the course will focus on the psychology of dialogue, and how you need to overcome yourself before persuading someone else to agree to your conditions.
This transitions beautifully into the ‘personality’ section of the course, where you will learn concepts such as ‘colours’, ‘aspects’ and ‘drives’ to always win at collaborative negotiation, regardless of the type of person you are talking to.
