Use agile negotiation skills to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes
Building agile negotiation skills enables sellers to realize the full value of the sale. Anxiety and fear of losing control, being taken advantage of, and/or damaging the relationship impacts negotiation performance. Sellers need the knowledge, confidence, and skill to avoid losing control, read and adapt to each situation, and guide the negotiation to a mutually beneficial result that maximizes their outcome and protects the relationship.
Sprint NegotiationsTM Sales Training Program Overview
Sprint Negotiations™ is a needs-, dialogue-, and value-based relationship approach to arriving at a mutually successful outcome for you and your customer that, ideally, enhances your relationship status with the customer.
This universal approach relies on the behavioral science behind how customers make decisions. These principles help sellers shape the customer’s perception of value while working toward a mutually beneficial outcome.
With a combination of social psychology, interactive learning, and customization, learners leave Sprint Negotiations™ training with the tools and confidence to move a commitment to a close.
We equip sellers with several tools including negotiation criteria, negotiation ‘sprints’, the critical skills to guide you through a negotiation, and the following:
- Sprint Negotiation Framework: A framework to help control outcomes by connecting the value of the offering to the customer’s business needs
- Negotiations Planning Tool: A planner to ensure proper preparation and execution of the Sprint Negotiation framework
