INSPIRING AND REWARDING

The Strategic Negotiation Skills course takes skills-building beyond the negotiating room and into a broader commercial context. It teaches how to understand buyer and seller behaviour, cut through tangled issues, choose the best strategic path and motivate your negotiation teams. Our expert consultants provide indepth individual coaching and focus the course on your current negotiation issues. Like the Scotwork A.N.S. course, the timetable is challenging and practical, but also inspiring and fun.

PRACTICAL OVER THEORY

Our strategic course combines lecture-style insights with practical case-play exercises to explore how to overcome typical strategic barriers. Participants use the PODEL diagnostic tool to support their decision making. Run over three days, every half-day module includes a short lecture, preparation, case-plays and video analysis.

EXPERT COACHING

The course is hosted by two expert Scotwork consultants, each with extensive client-side experience of running negotiations at senior level. They critique case-plays as they happen, deliver instant, incisive feedback and give on-the-spot guidance. With a tutor-to-trainee ratio of just 1:6, every participant is guaranteed plenty of best quality, one-on-one coaching.

Before and after

All participants receive expert input and support before and after the course:

PRE– COURSE PROFILING

Our Negotiation Profile questionnaire captures the confidence of participants before the course begins. It picks up areas of high and low confidence, and pinpoints which aspects need most attention. This revealing snapshot helps our coaches to draw up a Personal Development Plan for each trainee.

CAPABILITY SURVEY

Before training, participants are encouraged to give us insight into their organisation and its approach to negotiation, via our online Capabilty Survey. This, combined with stakeholder analysis, allows our consultants to focus the training on optimising outcomes for the organisation as well as the individual.

POST– COURSE SUPPORT

Once the course is completed, participants continue to use their Personal Development Plan as a roadmap to hone their skills over time. They have access to the Scotwork Toolbox, a folio of online content, applications and tools to inspire and help them in future strategic negotiations. Our Preparation Tool is invaluable for pre-negotiation planning, while the Scotwork App gives useful diagnostics, tips and techniques.
