Negotiating to Win/Win: Breaking the Traditional Rules of Negotiating

Negotiating to Win/Win: Breaking the Traditional Rules of Negotiating

Workshop Overview

In today's environment, successful businesses must view relationships with new and existing clients with a "business partner" mentality. As a result of this business partnership, traditional rules of negotiating are no longer successful. Winning in today's environment requires the ability to continually negotiate in a way that builds and strengthens long-term productive relationships, where both sides achieve their desired outcome. This one day, highly interactive and experiential event is based on the five- step strategy of principled negotiation from Ury and Fisher's bestseller Getting to Yes. It provides a clear framework for understanding the mechanics of successful negotiations — before, during and after the discussion. A key outcome of the workshop is becoming a reflective negotiator: someone who thinks about not just what they are negotiating, but also how. Through practice, participants learn from each negotiation so that they can be more skillful in the next. Participants will master the theory of negotiation, learn the stages of negotiation, and come away with specific strategies and techniques that work!
