bcctc_logo_low_resWe don’t get what we deserve – we get what we negotiate. That’s why learning how to handle negotiations is a key construction skill. Many individuals often fail in negotiation not because they are unable to get an agreement, but because they walk away from the table when they could have done much better.

In this seminar participants will learn a proven, practical step-by-step approach to win-win negotiations and how to protect themselves from “hardball” negotiators.

Topics to be covered:

  • The most common negotiating mistakes people make and how to avoid them
  • Understanding the difference between collaborative “win-win” and competitive
  • “hardball” negotiations and how to know what  game you are playing
  • The characteristics of highly effective negotiators
  • Understanding the different sources of negotiating power
  • How to strengthen your bargaining position
  • How to create an open communication flow that allows you to deeply understand the other party
  • The 5 steps process to quickly and effectively plan and prepare for your negotiations
  • How to determine your “walk-away point”
  • How to create win – win outcomes that ensure the other party lives up to their end of the bargain
