Dealing with Tough Negotiators

In-House TrainingOff the shelf training materials


You can't turn a tough negotiator into a collaborative, problem-solving partner. But you can achieve win-win outcomes if you apply the right negotiating techniques. HRDQ's Dealing with Tough Negotiators series will help your negotiators develop the skills they need. This 30-item assessment helps respondents identify their areas of strength and weakness in 5 key negotiating skill areas: Maintaining Composure, Developing Data, Refocusing the Discussion, Being Creative, and Handling Information Strategically.

Effective as stand-alone instruments or as part of a negotiating program, the Dealing with Tough Negotiators series helps negotiators who:
