Verhandlungsführung - Intensivseminar

Update, broaden, and deepen your negotiation skills

> Target audienceKey benefitsKey topicsMeet the staff

The German-language program “Verhandlungsführung – Intensivseminar” was designed for executives who have already gained experience at the negotiation table and are familiar with the principles of successful negotiations. In this program, they are encouraged to take the next step and learn how to affect the other party as well as learn which behaviors are detrimental, how to mentally prepare, and how to act as a negotiating partner.

If whole teams negotiate instead of just individuals, we are dealing with an even more difficult situation than negotiating in a narrow circle. The additional dynamics as well as the diverse reactions that take place in and between the teams require concentrated and constructive steering toward the desired negotiation result.

Participants also learn how to de-escalate conflicts, recapture established situations, and win negotiation partners who will stick to an agreement and be willing to establish future business.

In a safe program environment and on the basis of role plays and simulations, the participants rehearse the newly learned behaviors in order to be able to apply them later in their businesses.


Target audience

This course is designed for professionals who already have experience in the field of negotiating and would like to update, deepen, and broaden them.


Key benefits
