The Key Insights from Your Answers
Trust your instincts. You arrived at this page for a reason. The questions above just enable you to add logic to your gut instinct that support would help. The logic says that the potential downside is huge, you are not as prepared as you could be, and your team need coaching & training.
So what’s holding you back?
Time, cost, or you have convinced yourself that maybe they could win without the need to engage. They might. They might not.
Let’s Make it Easy
If the potential downside is more than £100,000, hire a negotiation consultant because it is better to pay one-tenth/two tenths to win £80k, than to not and lose £100k. But you know this, so how does it work…
There are 5 parts to supporting you as a negotiation consultant:
- Our team and your team spend half a day understanding the situation.
- Together, we agree on a plan of ‘attack’ for the negotiation and how we work together; check-ins. live updates, etc.
- We assess your team’s negotiation skills with a 121 assessment.
- Your team attends a ‘crash course’ in negotiation for 1-day.
- Each of your team members is assigned a coach for support to work on the gaps identified from the 121 assessments.
