Negotiation – Intensive Red Sheet

This intensive negotiation training course is based around the Red Sheet and includes most of the content found on the advanced course but with a shorter role play negotiation. It provides winning approaches for negotiation planning and helps those who attend to build the confidence and capability to take on moderate to advanced negotiation. The course includes video examples of negotiation and interviews with leading negotiators. Delegates explore in depth all aspects of negotiation, negotiation planning and body language, as well as the tactics, techniques and behaviours required for success.

This course will enable delegates to secure better outcomes from their negotiations, to be more in control of the negotiation process and have greater confidence along the way.

This course includes the personality module with the option of an individual psychometric assessment to evaluate personal negotiation style along with a module on negotiating across cultural boundaries. It also features extensive coverage of the tactics and techniques that can help in a negotiation as well as body language. During these highly interactive sessions, delegates get to witness first-hand some of the winning approaches and even try putting some into practice. The course culminates in a simple team-based role play with immediate feedback.

When taken as an online, instructor-led course, this training is CPD certified, meaning the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks for integrity and quality.
