NEGOTIATING ACROSS CULTURES
We are committed to supporting your development of effective negotiation skills by offering a flexible, blended learning solution to suit your specific needs.
Everything in life is a negotiation.
However, the acquisition of truly effective negotiation skills is challenging. The negotiating parties will require a degree of mindfulness, self-awareness, numeracy, curiosity, creativity and excellent communication skills. They will also have stamina, determination and, most importantly, a developed and acceptable BATNA – a Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement.
In addition, the ability to operate in the international negotiation field requires cultural intelligence, flexibility and the ability to apply it judiciously and effectively according to a specific situation at hand.
WorldWork’s negotiation skills training programme seeks to combine the above areas of personal development in interactive blended learning solutions tailored to suit the specific needs of different types of negotiators.
This versatile training programme will benefit:
New business negotiators
Seek to develop a solid negotiation skillset to agree new business in international markets.
Experienced business negotiators
Seek to build on the existing experience and enhance negotiation skills in culturally diverse environments.
Directors of Human Resources or Learning & Development functions
Look for a flexible learning solution to improve cross-cultural negotiating skills amongst new managers and procurement and business development departments
Look for additional materials to diversify their curricula (e.g. MBAs and similar programmes) and provide students with practical business skills.
Individual high-performance and business professionals
Want to improve everyday negotiation skills when operating in an intercultural environment.
The Learner Journey
The learner journey is represented in the following stages and should take four non-consecutive days to complete:
The groups will be deliberately kept small (max. 10 people) which means that everyone will receive individual feedback and a chance to have all their questions answered. The learning sessions include the active practice of the skills through role-play, interactive group activities and expert feedback.
In the current competitive marketplace, effective negotiation skills are more important than ever. These skills will ensure that we get the best price, the right decision or avoid conflict.
We all negotiate something every day. It is vital that we become more aware of the impact we have on others as well as understanding what drives our counterparts’ opinion and position.
With WorldWork’s access to highly experienced negotiation trainers from different parts of the world and a specialist blended learning design team, we are well-positioned to help you become an effective negotiator.
