   Successful Business Negotiation


From developing an individual negotiating style to reading your counterparts, Successful Business Negotiations will enhance this vital ‘career skill’. Learn the difference between persuasion and negotiation as well as tactics and fundamental techniques of negotiation. Being able to think and respond in a clear, concise manner with your goals being foremost on the agenda is the result. Patrick Forsythe can show you this simple skill in a day. It will stay with you for a lifetime.

Negotiation is part art, part science. It is a dynamic, interactive process, and you need to be well prepared, yet flexible, and to recognize that the people element is the most important and the least predictable. It is complex – to negotiate successfully you must see the process in the round, take a broad view and have a good grasp of the principles involved, so you can orchestrate and fine-tune the process as you proceed. Small adjustments along the way can make a difference to the outcome.
