Being persuasive in management situations

Topic: Management & Leadership

Part A:

The term “negotiation” is used to refer to relationships with unions and management, customers and suppliers. These are explicit negotiations.

However, the term “negotiation” is less widely used in relationships between managers and staff. Nevertheless, certain situations involve negotiation, even if it is implicit.

Learning objectives:
Operational tools to help you develop your negotiating strategy:

  • How to clarify the concept of the win-win relationship.
  • What to prepare for your negotiations.

Part B:

If you want to negotiate with your coworkers, you need to develop a specific set of skills. As this is a long-term relationship, it is particularly important to conduct negotiations in a way that gives coworkers an opportunity to state their opinion and receive due recognition and consideration.

Learning objectives:
Operational tools to develop a “win-win” approach with your coworkers:

  • Distinguishing between positions and interests.
  • Concluding win-win agreements with your coworkers.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
