Course Overview:

Have you ever found that you had differences with another individual, whether a partner, a colleague, a friend, a child, a boss or even a complete stranger? Then you have been confronted with the need of putting your negotiation skills at work. Yes, negotiation is the way by which people settle disputes of any kind.

In this course, the participants will learn about successful negotiation techniques and using them effectively in a different situation and with people of different levels of power. The participants will learn how their negotiation skills impact the organizations that they represent and their personality. The course also reflects the different types of outcomes that are achieved while negotiating and understanding which of these outcomes can be accepted and which one cannot be accepted. At last, but not least, the course also reflects on the influencing process and how things can be achieved without having the proper authority or power.

After a brief introduction each participant has 1 to 2 minutes to introduce themselves and put their presentation and communication skills in practice among the audience for the first time (if the intake has included the requested video, this introduction will only be 1 minute).
