Our people are the single biggest factor behind our success.
At some point, we all need to gain buy-in and support from those in more senior roles in the business - we need to influence and negotiate upwards at a senior level. To achieve meaningful negotiations we need to maintain our composure, plan to minimise risk and develop a contingency plan. To help influence we should draw on our sources of power and understand others social styles to help us communicate appropriately.

This course focuses specifically on how to influence and negotiate upwards. It teaches you the personal skills of maintaining composure to achieve meaningful negotiations with people at a more senior level and how to plan negotiation with minimal risks to you whilst developing a contingency plan. You will learn how to analyse and draw on the sources of power in an organisation to increase your influence, and how to apply different styles to suit different individuals and situations. We will introduce you to a comprehensive framework that covers the entire process from how to prepare for a negotiation, to concluding an agreement to accomplish a positive result for both sides.
You will also have the opportunity to analyse your own stakeholders and will leave with an action plan for influencing and negotiating in the situations you have identified as important.
This course is suitable for anyone who needs to influence and negotiate with senior decision-makers and stakeholders, particularly in situations where they may have no direct authority.
