Content of Negotiation skills

In successful negotiation processes, parties investigate their seemingly conflicting interests and try to uncover what is really at stake. In most cases, underlying interests are surprisingly diverse and often form the key to win-win negotiations. To get to this level, you need to establish a relationship that is built on trust and interdependence. Creating room for decisive yet agile communication with respect for each other's points of view.

The course covers the following subjects:

  • Key ingredients of the win-win negotiation: content, atmosphere, power balance and procedures
  • Tools and rules to move negotiations in the right direction to achieve your goals
  • Conflict / negotiation styles and their effects: win-win, win-lose and lose-lose negotiation

  • Negotiation exercises

  • Raising the bar: using different negotiation styles
  • Power and dependency
  • How to deal with manipulation and 'dirty tricks'
