INTRODUCTION FOR NEGOTIATION SKILLS: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF PERSUASION & NEGOTIATION FOR MANAGER & LEADERS USING NLP

We are persuading and negotiating with others almost all the time in our daily work activities. Whether with business partners, clients, suppliers, colleagues or even family members, the success of our outcomes depends entirely on our understanding of the negotiation and communication process. When engaged in negotiations where your skill, as a smart negotiator and manager, may prevent losses, increase gains or enhance circumstances for you or your organization, it is imperative that you invest in your capability to:

  • Prepare effectively
  • Clearly understand the various personality types and their tendencies in Negotiation
  • Understand the needs & interests of all parties involved
  • Conclude better Win-Win agreements through creativity
  • Identify potential barriers or hindrances to the engagement
  • Adopt a collaborative approach to ensuring trust, rapport and long term gains

There is also a growing awareness that conflict at all levels in society is not always best resolved through force and coercion. What is needed is an increased ability on the part of leaders to develop successful outcomes through influence and persuasion rather than coercion and heavy-handed tactics. In addition, more than ever before, individuals need to be able to influence others on a 360-degree basis rather than just those individuals who report to them. This program will equip your executives and managers with vital skills to help in those processes. The course material is based on sound psychological approaches to negotiation, which include an understanding of personality, motivation and intelligence. The more practical and scientifically proven approaches of NLP (or Neuro Linguistic Psychology) and the development of rapport skills are also covered.

 

OBJECTIVES

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Evaluate the essential psychological aspects of a range of approaches to influencing others and negotiating positive win/win outcomes
  • Apply the principles of a number of well-researched influence models in NLP
  • Develop and apply practical methods for effective win/win outcomes within your own organization.
  • Secure faster deals through powerful non-verbal techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Utilize NLP reframes to turn impending objections into a winning outcome
  • Persuade and close with a difference – where they can’t say ‘No’

 

METHODOLOGY
In this experiential training, the training facilitator adopts a coaching and facilitative approach. It is very important to engage the participants in reviewing their own outcome.
The activities are designed to illustrate key issues or challenges that the participants are facing in
selling/persuading by using NLP tools to create illustrations and activities such as role plays, mind
exercises and group discussions.

organization and as well as working out the best win-win deals with suppliers, contractors or customers.
