Before stepping into an ENS program, an online survey provides insights to your negotiation experience, challenges and areas of interest.

This is an important step in the ENS learning journey to ensure that we’re providing the growth and development you really need.

During the course
This course is a fast-paced and intensive two-day training course which builds your negotiation and influencing capabilities through hands-on experiential exercises. You’ll be introduced to the commercially acclaimed ENS Negotiation Process Frameworks, techniques and methodologies. Topics in this course include: how to use the ‘secret strategy’, how to identify and employ effective negotiation tactics, adapt your communication style, and manage negotiations to achieve your objectives.

You’ll develop a personal action plan to lock-in major learnings. Reinforcement emails reflect on your experience and enable implementation. Once the training is complete, you’ll revisit the concepts and practises covered to ensure they become embedded in everyday scenarios. Our training partner ENS provides an e-newsletter which analyses negotiation practises currently happening around the world and offers insights and useful tips so you can apply them to your own scenarios.
