Course Overview:

This course focuses on effective negotiation techniques to be successful in different situations and with people holding different levels of power. The course evaluates how negotiations impact the organizations and ourselves. Reflect on the different outcomes that can be achieved through negotiation and understand which outcomes are acceptable for the intended objectives. Finally participants reflect on the influencing process and how one can achieve things without having the authority or power.

Each module has been carefully selected based on the intake and skills gaps of the specific audience. After a brief introduction, participants are given 1 to 2 minutes to introduce themselves, practicing their presentation and communication skills (if the intake has included the requested video, this introduction will only be 1 minute).

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define negotiation and influencing stages and how to do so effectively.
  • Understand different aspects of negotiating: persuasion, manipulation, assertiveness, rationalisation, and active listening.
