Common Sense Negotiating

Common Sense Negotiating (CSN) is a practical approach to the negotiating process that is used everyday by everyone.  CSN teaches that any successful negotiation is relational and never adversarial.  By using the skill sets that one has already developed, and along with simple conversational techniques, anyone can have a positive negotiating experience.

“How Can I Get Common Sense Negotiating?”

As a half or full day workshop the content along with participant interaction and input, provides a solid foundation for the negotiating process.  CSN can also be customized for individual and group needs.  Regular group trainings reinforce the workshop material and adapt it to specific industry and business settings.  As a mentor and coaching system,  CSN can be used as a resource for the business or individual who has ongoing negotiating needs.  The techniques can be taught, supported or implemented as specific needs arise.

The saying goes that anything can be negotiated.  Whether this is true or not, it always depends on the circumstances and the negotiator.  Common Sense Negotiating supports the idea that by using simple proven processes, strong systems and common sense communication techniques, one will always have the ability and confidence to negotiate anything…and WIN!
