The ability to negotiate is central to the success of so many daily interactions – both within the workplace and outside! However, there is no one-size fits all approach to using negotiation to its full potential. Whether negotiating with clients or colleagues, in a formal or informal environment, in a planned or spontaneous setting, considering the approach and using tactics that acknowledge the interests of both parties can be the key to finding a winning solution.

This workshop will explore some of the different types of negotiation approaches that could be used in a variety of situations, while examining some of the tactics that could be recruited in each.

Participants will share top tips for getting past the “no” and to the “yes”, while exploring principled negotiation strategies that ensure outcome are achieved amicably and efficiently.

In order to embed the learning, the workshop will involve practice planning for an upcoming negotiation situation participants may be facing at work. They will learn how to prepare for the negotiation by considering their desired outcomes and identifying the tactics and approach they will use to achieve these.
