“You are a champion. I have improved my delegation skills, stress levels, office relationships, leadership skills, honesty and general performance since hooking up with you. “

“I know you would receive a lot of emails and this is not strictly work related. I just wanted to let you know how effective your tips have been in a personal way. I have been ineffectively trying to initiate a dialogue for two years and have recently been more than successful by putting into practice the few tools you have taught us.”

“I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you again for a sensational workshop. I can say without reservation that yours was the most effective, entertaining and well-presented course I have attended. I have come away with a collection of negotiation skills that will add a new dimension to my role.”

ALLOWING OTHERS TO HAVE “YOUR” WAY! – Negotiating and Positioning to Influence

One Day Workshop

Honing your influencing and negotiation skills can increase your performance – consistently giving you more favorable outcomes. Negotiation is more than price and timing, it’s not only position or added value, finalising contracts and terms and conditions – it’s the fully integrated approach to everything you do to influence favourable outcomes within your job role and with your peers.

‘Allowing Others to Have “YOUR” Way – Negotiating and Positioning to Influence‘ is one of the core programs in NAWO’s suite of ‘Members Only’ Professional Development Programs, presented by talkforce.

What you will learn:

  • What is the difference between negotiation and influence?
  • Discover the key differences between influence and negotiation.
    What makes someone effective at influencing and negotiating?
  • Setting objectives – this is crucial in order to set your strategy for the negotiation.
  • Gathering information – why are you coming to the negotiation table? Exactly what is it that you want?
  • Understand the stakeholders – whether you’re making a deal or settling a dispute, differences are defined by the difference between your thinking and theirs.
  • Develop your strategy – through thorough preparation.
  • Develop influencing tactics – positioning language to influence.
  • Effective execution – verbal and non-verbal communication.
  • Application to your world in operations.
