  • Get an overview and analysis of the entire negotiation process and master each step;
  • Acquire the objectivity and competence necessary to prepare and lead negotiations;
  • Know how to prepare in an efficient and detailed way: what they want, how to quantify their aim, how to break it down into negotiable results;
  • Master tools directly usable in daily life, whether they are called on to negotiate or not;
  • Learn how to use effective questioning techniques, and verbal / non-verbal communication;
  • Understand how to build and make an offer, and reach an agreement;
  • Increase their negotiation capacities (hands-on practise) in a "risk-free" environment, thus enabling them to be more efficient, save time and share a coherent approach;
