All successful people are good at negotiating but to reach this stage most of us find it necessary to practice, prepare, hone up our skills and learn through experience. There is probably no such thing as a natural negotiator, even the best negotiators do so by refining their skills and planning important meetings very carefully beforehand. There is no doubt that the more prepared you are for a meeting or negotiation the better the outcome and the quicker your skills will improve. It is as simple as that.
This one day interactive course will help delegates to become masters at the art of negotiating the “win-win” outcome so often mentioned in selling textbooks. It examines the best ways of dealing with customers of all types whilst remaining mindful that the principles of fairness, seeking mutual benefit and maintaining a relationship are the keys to a successful outcome. Hard selling works, sometimes – usually only once. Negotiated sales generate repeat business and ultimately longer term relationships.
The course is highly interactive and will contain numerous case studies and examples.
