You will learn how to manage the negotiation process, manage your emotions and emotions in others during your more difficult interactions.This session will provide you with a model for preparing yourself in anticipation for a negotiation and give you a structured model to follow to ensure the best results possible. This course can be structured to be delivered from a 90-minute “Lunch and Learn” session, a 4-hour interactive training session, or a full 8-hour day. The full day session contains the following material while the shorter presentations are tailored to contain components from the course of specific interest to the client.The struggle we often experience between meeting our substantive needs in the negotiation while maintaining or improving the working relationship.The impact our “mindset” and “assumptions” have on the way we interact with the other party during a negotiation.Traditional “Positional Bargaining” compared with the more effective “Interest Based Negotiation”.Strategies for “creating value” for both sides during the negotiation.
