Negotiation Skills

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP

Business Context

The knot in your stomach as you prepare to negotiate a deal tells you how vital this discussion will be in the success of your business. Winning in business usually means getting specific results. However, a winning negotiation with colleagues, clients, suppliers and vendors means both parties not only achieve their goals but build a stronger relationship.  

Challenge & Solution

We tend to think of negotiation as a competition. Yet lasting success requires a different approach. It demands we move beyond competing—to cooperating and even collaborating. 

Exec-Comm's Negotiation Skills program introduces business professionals to a process and skills that build confidence, creative solutions, measurable results and long-term relationships.

  • Understand the six stages of negotiation
  • Discover the value of collaboration and practice techniques to encourage it
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your Personal Communication Style in negotiations

  • Learn to use currencies appropriately and effectively when negotiating
