influencing skills training and negotiation skills training

Influencing and negotiating skills training


We all influence others everyday, sometimes we’re not even aware that we’re doing it.  In the workplace, we need our staff and managers to be able to influence the behaviour of others and negotiate where people have differing views.

Whether it’s managers influencing staff behaviour and negotiating performance objectives or front line staff influencing customers and external stakeholders, or negotiating deals with clients – most of your staff need to know how to influence positively.

Our one-day influencing and negotiating skills training course is a highly interactive and fun way for your staff to explore the impact they have on others as well as finding out what underpins other people’s positions.  We explore the skills and attributes of successful influencers before introducing proven strategies and our own version of dragons den to put their skills to the test.

This course works particularly well when delivered in conjunction with our communication skills training courses.
