Blooms Masterclass: Influence And Negotiation For Entrepreneurs | July 4 | London

Entrepreneurship often requires us to negotiate complex, thoughtful deals with investors, partners and customers that create maximum value. Adopting a negotiation frameworkallows us to internalize best practices for negotiation preparation, conduct, and review, enabling continuous improvement in our skills, and in turn, in our agreements with internal and external partners. Most importantly a negotiation skillset allows us to create significant and tangible value with suppliers, employees, investors, clients, and partners.

Focus of this course:

  • § Recognize common negotiation dynamics and embedded assumptions that hold us back from creating value
  • § Understand the notion of value as a “fixed pie”, and the tendency to compete versus collaborate in a negotiation. Overcoming this expands our capacity to gain maximum value.
  • § Define success, prepare, conduct, and review negotiations in a more powerful way enabling improved business results
  • § Develop awareness of the common pitfalls many women face in conducting negotiations
