In any negotiation, we never want the process to come down to one issue. Why? By definition, there will be a winner and a loser. Bredison will create customized role-plays and case studies to ensure the right tools are used to provide a mutually beneficial outcome.
This program can consist of 3 role-plays designed to teach the process of principled negotiation. The first role-play will be designed to show what characteristics, strengths, and challenges each individual possess’. (Buying and selling an automobile). The second role-play will be customized to the specific sales environment with the ability to implement the tools that have been presented throughout the course. The last role-play will be designed by each individual in the classroom. The idea is to go “live” with an actual scenario in order to develop a number of negotiating strategies to begin using on the next sales call.
The course will be divided into 2 main sections
- Pre-Negotiating Planning
