Negotiation Training

To successfully negotiate across cultures, traveling and crossing borders was once a necessity, but in today's highly globalized world, it can happen right where you are.

Do you have the necessary skills to navigate cross-cultural negotiations effectively?

Negotiation is a skill that can be developed over time and each situation is different. It is important to evaluate your performance after each negotiation to identify areas of improvement and to build on your strength.

By understanding the customs and values of the culture you are negotiating with, you can avoid many of the pitfalls of cross-cultural negotiations. By doing so, you can ensure that your negotiations are successful and that agreements that are fair and beneficial to all parties involved are made.

Our training program unveils unique strategies employed by the most skilled international negotiators, utilizing the Lewis model taught at the Said Business School of Oxford University.
