ILM Recognized Win-Win Negotiation Skills - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

Negotiation is part of our daily lives. Every day we negotiate with customers, suppliers, co-workers, business associates and family members. Negotiation is a method by which people settle differences. It is, to put it simply, the process of trying to get what you want from another person. Too often, business negotiations are limited to a battle over price. While price is of course important, this single-mindedness limits the total value that the parties could benefit from in a partnership. In this negotiation training course, you will gain insight into the habits of good negotiators as you build your own skills. Through a series of group exercises, you will be able to learn and practice proven negotiation tactics, refine your personal negotiating style, and improve your ability to negotiate successfully and effectively in any situation.
