Black belt negotiation: how much are you leaving on the table?

Thursday, 13 May 2021
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
    • Tom Flatau , International speaker and coach

>> Event Overview

The Black Belt Negotiator has become the gold-standard, adopted by multi-nationals, including HSBC, The Kier Group, American Express, Parsons and Siemens. It has helped reduce costs, improve project delivery, win new business, increase profit...while at the same time building better relationships with key trading partners!

Thanks to the latest neuroscience research, we know more about the human brain and how we make decisions than ever before, but most of us are still unaware of how to apply these new insights to negotiation.

Neuroscience sheds light on how certain negotiating behaviours unintentionally alienate the other side. We demonstrate why and the most effective methods to use instead. We emphasise the importance of long-term business relationships, focusing on tradeables and win-win solutions that keep both sides happy.

>> Learning Objectives

  • Understand the powerful emotional undercurrents at work and get to the real issues
  • Have the confidence to present your case with compelling impact
  • Spot the most common negotiators’ tricks and counter them

Through interaction, real-world examples and scientific explanation, Tom’s talks explain the limiting beliefs and fixed mindsets that inhibits the potential of so many. He explains the brain’s ability to rewire in order to make everlasting changes in behaviour and mindset.
