Detailed Programme

This programme goes well beyond traditional training in negotiation. The primary focus is on the beliefs, processes and tactics at the negotiation table - where the ‘magic’ happens. The theories and models are applied in practice. Role plays, real-life scenarios and expert feedback help you integrate new learning into your mindset and skills set when approaching negotiation situations.

The programme ‘Negotiating to Create Value’ has 5 modules. These modules consist of:

Module 1: Claiming your share

  • What do I want to get out of the negotiation?
  • Formulating your best alternative.

Module 2: Unlocking underlying interests

  • What are the differences between positions and interests?
  • Asking the right questions.

Module 3: Thinking out-of-the-box

  • How to create value for both parties?
  • The power of emotions. 

Module 4: How to shape negotiations strategy

  • What are 3D negotiations?
  • How to handle multi-party negotiations.

Module 5: Your personal negotiation style

  • What are my strengths?
  • How to tackle your weak spots.
