Advanced Negotiation Training

About this Course

Our advanced negotiation skills training course was created to equip negotiators who face deals which are more complex, team-based, large, strategically important, or international. You'll receive gloves-off feedback from Negotiation Experts, as you navigate your way through true to life deals. You'll learn to master the tools and rational dimensions, while leveraging your interpersonal soft-skills.

The bigger and more complex your deals become, the more comprehensively you need to be equipped to come out on top. Our negotiation best practice includes tool-sets, processes, value maximising strategies, team roles, tactics, persuasion and influencing skills. Miss any one dimension, and you risk leaving value on the table - value we will be measuring on this training.

The results enjoyed by graduates of our Advanced Negotiation Training speak for themselves. Our graduates include veteran commercial teams from some of the world's largest multi-nationals, who are to this day using their skills to close large deals in less time at higher margins.

We keep theory to a minimum, so you'll be engaged throughout with challenging real-life negotiation simulations, receiving personalized feedback. You'll get to use our innovative tools, and gain personalised feedback from a seasoned global Negotiation Expert. Timely reinforcement post-graduation ensures lessons stick. Negotiators complete an assessment several months post-graduation, plus negotiate again with each other using our popular online negotiation simulation.

Training Course Approach

You'll spend most of your time negotiating your way through challenging role-plays and then reviewing your negotiations. Why do we have such a strong bias towards the practical, sharing only a minimum of theory? Over the years we've noticed that behaviour is far more likely to change from learners 'doing'. Trust and mastery of our tool-sets grow out of getting great results in action.

Some modules are introduced with a role-play and unpacked in the feedback which follows, while more complex modules are briefed first followed by a role play. Feedback is provided via a number of methods: video analysis, point-scoring, and group discussions. The analysis will mainly depend on which module is being taught, each module building one-upon-another. Feedback can be right-brained such as persuasion techniques or left-brained such as tool-sets. Our delivery style is highly interactive and entertaining, keeping energy levels high.

Negotiation role plays build steadily in complexity, from single negotiators to team-based negotiations. Our Advanced Negotiation Skills Training Course is characterised by in-depth discussions amongst an experienced group of negotiators.
