Negotiations that create results
Negotiations with an impact
Everything is changing – and hence everything is up for negotiation. On a daily basis, you negotiate with clients, suppliers, employers, colleagues and authorities. You negotiate in your professional life and in your personal life. Regardless of where you negotiate, the best way to reach your goals is by using a negotiation technique that brings about a shared experience of success. It’s not about winning a war with arguments, but rather about creating win–win experiences.
This two-day course on negotiation techniques will provide you with basic tools and techniques and an insight into effective negotiations at all levels.

Practical learning method
This course is very much a practice-based course. You will be given an opportunity to test yourself, and we will constantly relate theory and tools to realistic situations that you know from your everyday life.
The facilitation takes place in a calm, relaxed atmosphere where you can safely make the necessary mistakes and expect positive, forthcoming feedback from the facilitator and your fellow course participants.
Points on the agenda during the course
After the course, you will be able to approach any negotiation situation with a sense of calm and perspective because you know the mechanisms that lead to insecurity and conflict. You will also know what it takes for both parties to feel heard and feel that their views are being taken into account, so that you can create the results that you need. The course is an intensive practice-based course.
