Unfortunately, very few of us are born negotiators. However, Successful Negotiating can teach you the art of win/win negotiation. You'll get a firm grasp of the negotiating tricks and techniques the pros use. Learn everything from prenegotiation planning to the use of seemingly unimportant details like seating arrangements and meeting site selection to influence the results of negotiations.

Learn how to:

  • Sway an opponent with timing and association techniques
  • Identify an opponent's real but often hidden needs
  • Use questions to control the thrust of a discussion
  • Employ proven strategies like the"missing man","straw issues," and "wakout" ploys
  • Communicate a position clearly and precisely
  • Plan a realistic course of action based on sound preparation and an objective appraisal of resources
  • Keep the negotiation process open to reasonableness and flexibility at all times
  • Draw on your own skills, experience, and self-discipline to keep the process moving in the direction you want

The Institute for Certification, a department of Professional Secretaries International� – the Association for Office Professionals�, will grant points toward CPS� recertification to qualified individuals who successfully complete this course.

Course Objective:
