Negotiating is an integral part of business and relationships.  Most people don't prepare for negotiations because they don't realise they're in one.  Yet there are techniques you can use to get others to say 'yes' more often, that build your confidence and work effectively towards mutually beneficial outcomes.  In the workplace, improving your negotiation capability will help you build stronger relationships, deliver long-term solutions and avoid harmful conflict.

This 3-hour workshop will take you through the process of preparing for negotiations and running collaborative negotiations in order to get the best possible outcome for everyone. Learn the 5 stages of a collaborative negotiation.
