Negotiations for Small Business Owners
Negotiating is probably one of the most under-trained skills among business owners. Most of us know what we know about negotiating because we’ve been knocked around a bit at the negotiating table, but we don’t really know what the tactics are, why they work, or how to counter them. This course will take you through over 20 negotiating tactics as well as the preparation and the mindset you need to have to negotiate more profitable deals for your business.
Business owners negotiate multiple situations every week whether it’s a situation with an employee or a contract with a client or vendor. This course will walk you through how to look at a negotiation from the beginning so that you’re in the proper frame of mine. Then you’ll learn how create a game plan for each negotiation that you enter. You’ll learn everything from getting your counterpart’s story and why that’s important to how to deal with issues like deadlock. You’ll know the rules for negotiating over phone or through email.

You’ll know what to look out for when it comes to closing the deal and some of the sticky issues that come up when the actual contract lands on your desk.
Negotiating doesn’t have to be a dreaded, tiring process. It can actually be fun! After taking the Negotiations Training for Small Business Owners course you’ll feel knowledgeable and confident going into every negotiation.
