The Successful Negotiator: Key Attributes to Win Those Projects





Language:English
Summary:Do you want to establish up front contracts with your clients to ensure you reach your goals? Do you want to learn how to remove emotions from negotiating? Do you want to stop feeling as thought you “lost” in the deal? The Successful Negotiator Webinar is designed to help linguists answer “yes” to these questions and more…
Description
The translation industry continues to become more and more competitive.  In order to win more business, translators really only have 2 options: continually lower their rates (which is a bad proposition) or sell on their reputation and quality. Either way you need to be a Successful Negotiator.  Because negotiation is a very powerful tool, in order for you to get what you feel you deserve, you will have to be a Successful Negotiator.  

Skilled negotiators use questions (seeking information) to fully understand the problems, needs and position of their counterparts. The Successful Negotiator webinar will teach linguists how to ask questions that will position themselves to reach their goals. Successful Negotiators also use testing, understanding and summarizing to probe, test and clarify difficult areas before asking for agreement. The Successful Negotiator webinar will learn techniques such as behavior labeling ("Let me just check my understanding…" or "If I could just summarize for a moment…"), and use substantially more feelings commentary ("I feel we are making good progress") than less-skilled negotiators.

Participants will learn to avoid immediate counter proposals, argument dilution (a weak argument dilutes a strong one, and the more arguments, the more risks), irritators (words or phrases which do nothing to persuade but irritate the other side, e.g., "The way I see it, we've made a very generous offer here"), and defend/attack spirals (escalating exchanges of attacks).

The Successful Negotiator webinar will teach translators that planning their negotiation is important, but if you can control and utilize interactive behaviors effectively, you will greatly increase your success rate with more win-win outcomes.
