Negotiation Skills Are Important

Negotiation Skills are very important in business and government work. We are always negotiating.  The job interview is a negotiation. Working for a pay rise is a negotiation. Leadership is constant negotiation. Successful business dealings are based on negotiation. Government projects are all about negotiation. I think we agree that negotiation skills are important to our professional success.

If negotiation is so important, why isn’t the skill of negotiation taught more often? That is a mystery to me. Let’s fix that.

Every business I have worked with has seen measurable improvement as a direct result of team members learning to be better negotiators.

Pick up a newspaper or watch the news on TV and you can see example after example of poor negotiation skills. My clients send me emails every day with examples that they have identified. A government official makes a statement indicating a hard and fast position on an issue. I understand the need to protect your interests but is it necessary to draw such firm lines before negotiation begins? That’s old thinking. Isn’t the first goal to get a conversation started? If I deliver a list of demands before we talk, would you want to talk?

Business negotiation is similar to political negotiation. Why must a negotiation start with unreasonable demands? That is not necessary. You can’t close a deal that you can’t discuss. Right?

Make Far Better Deals

I teach negotiation skills that will help you succeed where others have failed. I base much of my instruction on the Nobel Prize winning work on Game Theory by John Nash. I simplify the math and teach you to understand what motivates the other side to make a deal with you. It works. I have used this technique to buy a car and to help a client recover $3.5 million dollars. I helped another client receive a donated building worth $5 million dollars. Donated. I helped another client receive $100 million in tax benefits while escaping a very costly legal problem. I helped another client close the biggest sale in the history of the company.

These are just a few examples of the power of skilled negotiation. You and your team can learn these skills in a couple of days at a very reasonable cost.

It works like this. You tell me about your business and I adjust my course to your objectives. Then I come to you and present the course on your schedule. We can study over 1/2 days or full days. That will be up to you.

Do You Agree?

If you agree that negotiation skills are important, then you must also see that improved ability to negotiate is worth a small cost. Right? I love negotiation and I want you to be successful. I am tired of seeing deals lost, agreements collapse, and settlement opportunities missed. That’s economic waste.

To discuss having a negotiation class at your location, drop me an email. We start discussing how to make this work for you. Then we’ll set up a conference call. If you like what we discuss, we can start planning your class. Let’s get started.

What about speaking skills?

Everyone gets nervous when it’s time to speak in front of a group. That fear can be overcome and anyone can be an effective speaker if they know a few tricks. Being a confident speaker can give your career a boost.

I am ready to plan a trip to your office. We’ll work hard together to make your business stronger and more professional than ever.

Send me an email and let’s start talking about training for your business.

Chris Reich, Negotiation Instructor

I have been helping businesses make more money for nearly 30 years. In that time, I have worked with CEOs, upper-level management of many companies, and government officials.  I have taken over failing companies as acting CEO and helped them get back to making a profit. Now I want to help you.

The ability to negotiate is possibly the most important business and government skill a person can have today. When was the last time you seriously studied negotiation? It’s time to get started.
