Negotiation skills

Negotiating effectively, a core business skill

Effective negotiation is not a skill you are born with. It is a competence you can learn and develop by doing. That is why the focus in this training is active participation in very practical and recognisable exercises, cases and role-plays.

The training 'Negotiation skills' gives you a profound insight in the negotiation process. It gives you the necessary self-confidence and agility to conclude your deals successfully.


Everybody negotiates. Who will take the lead in this project? What price will be negotiated with this big client? How do we plan to collaborate with this new partner? How much will your fee amount to?

Each professional needs to negotiate regularly. Strong negotiation skills have become an increasingly important core competency if you want to be successful. As companies tend to work less and less hierarchically, decisions are often taken in larger meetings where consensus needs to be reached. In these situations, strong negotiation skills are crucial for success!
