A seasoned negotiator can recognise changes in the state of the other party and make appropriate adjustments to their approach to ensure ongoing discussion and best outcome. VPTN’s Advanced Negotiation Skills workshop will provide facilities and their teams with further skills to grasp the mindset of an expert negotiator.

VPTN’s Advanced Negotiation Skills workshop will provide facility managers and their teams the opportunity to further build upon their existing negotiation skills through learning how to re-rail a derailed negotiation, utilising power and leverage in negotiations, how to feel in control in an uncomfortable negotiation, how to recognise negotiation tactics and stances and how to best communicate and use language in negotiations.

Participants will learn how to analyse each negotiation situation to establish their approach and role play realistic scenarios to practice their skills, receiving feedback and tips along the way.

VPTN’s Advanced Negotiation Skills workshop provides practical help to enable facility management to grasp the mindset of an expert negotiator. So this workshop is the next step up and assumes participants have a basic understanding of negotiation. Please note, attendance at the previous workshop is not a prerequisite for the Advanced Negotiation Skills workshop.
