Two Day Negotiation Workshop

The art of negotiation is a vital business skill and especially so in these uncertain times. Arguably, the ability to negotiate in a virtual business environment demands an even higher level of skill and understanding. Great negotiators are not born, however. They follow a process and have to practice skills to become effective. Our negotiation coaching covers all aspects of negotiating for both novices and experienced alike.

Our workshops are delivered by seasoned professionals with many years of successful negotiation at the highest levels of the industry. We make them a highly interactive experience, believing that people “learn best by doing” – one of the hallmarks Clearwater has built its reputation on. Individuals and teams practice negotiation scenarios which are filmed and then reviewed to elicit learning. We explain the process, and dynamics and cover the full range of skills. Clients leave with the ability to confidently negotiate under a range of circumstances.

If your organisation is serious about negotiations and improving performance and results, this workshop is for you.
