Negotiations Skills

We all learn the art of negotiation as infants, intent on getting an extra slice of cake or an extended bedtime.  Children are masters in the art but as we get older self doubt and insecurity can often creep in.

How often do we truly believe we have negotiated effectively, with colleagues, customers, suppliers and in our personal lives ? Are we falling into the same old traps? Do we have a nagging feeling that the ‘other side’ always gets a better deal ?

Negotiation skills training is available for experienced and inexperienced negotiators and for those wishing to refresh their existing skills.  Negotiations can take many forms from selling & purchasing through to managing conflicts and general business.
