Negotiating Effectively Within Your Own Organization

The Karrass Internal Negotiating Training Program

The purpose of the internal negotiating training program is to demonstrate a new approach to working with people in today's fast changing, increasingly complex economy, an economy where no matter how smart or technically competent you are, you need good relationships and an open exchange of ideas with others to get the job done successfully.

Focus on Three Crucial Skills:

  • The negotiation of differences
  • The exchange of viewpoints and ideas
  • The building of relationships

The Negotiation of Differences and Disagreements

Negotiating behaviors and approaches that help those in organizations resolve differences and problems in ways that promote collaborative, Both-Win® solutions and stronger relationships.

The Exchange of Viewpoints and Ideas

Behaviors that encourage members of a group or project to express themselves, exchange viewpoints and ideas candidly, to be heard and listen to one another in an involved, focused way, and to give respectful weight to each person's thoughts and concerns.

The Building of Positive Energy Relationships

Behaviors that lead those who work together to interact in positive, energy-building ways, and to get along harmoniously and productively in pursuit of group goals.

Develope Your Abilities and Refine Your Skills

The interactions and negotiations you have with others in your own organization are some of the most challenging and most important.

How you handle these daily interactions, discussions and meetings impact your career. These negotiations can damage, or improve organizational harmony and your ability to get the job done successfully. Everything is a negotiation.

Whether you realize it, or not, every time you interact with people inside your own company you are negotiating. Selling yourself and your ideas is a critical internal negotiation.

You, along with your team, will be heard and listened to, without risk of negativism.
