Strategic Negotiator Program Raffles Leadership Centre

LIVE!  Face-to-face class at Regent Hotel Singapore with Michelin-star lunch

This is probably the best practical negotiation skills training course in Singapore – Welcome to the Strategic Negotiator Program, an international negotiation skills training program for leaders and executives at all levels, designed in collaboration with the Centre for Global Negotiation and delivered by Raffles Leadership Centre. Our team comprises some of the best negotiation trainers in Singapore and Asia.

(With Zoom option) Based on an executive learning model and packed with practical ideas, the Strategic Negotiator Program is a negotiation training course in Singapore that blends conceptual and hands-on skills training. Based on participants’ feedback, it is probably the best practical negotiation skills training course in Singapore. The program uses a mix of theory, discussion and experiential learning. It is ideal for people who would like to be a better negotiator personally and professionally. In fact, Harvard University’s research suggests that all great executives share a key quality: the ability to negotiate.  And the good news is great negotiators are made, not born.

Participants will gain the skills, insights and competencies required for negotiation at all levels regardless of industries and organizational contexts. They will learn important negotiation concepts, strategies and skills, how to develop negotiation power and how to become more influential in all kinds of business and social interactions.

The 2-day negotiation training course in Singapore puts emphasis on real-world applications, connects theory to practice and will be facilitated by an experienced negotiation trainer, who has an in-depth Asian perspective. The class size is also kept small to enhance facilitation effectiveness and healthy participant interaction.

Upon completion of this world-class negotiation skills training program in Singapore, participants will gain confidence and practical skills and have a negotiation tool-kit that they can use in virtually any negotiation situation.

As a voluntary pre-work assignment, you may like to use the following reading list from Harvard University’s Project on Negotiation. Their recommended books are:

  • The Power of Noticing: What the Best Leaders See, by Max H. Bazerman. Have you ever had a negotiation fall apart because you missed a critical piece of information that you should have noticed? Harvard Business School professor Bazerman describes how to overcome the common tendency to focus too narrowly on the problem before us in negotiations and beyond.
  • Negotiating at Work: Turn Small Wins into Big Gains, by Deborah M. Kolb and Jessica L. Porter. We won’t meet our career goals if we only negotiate during hiring interviews and annual performance reviews. In Negotiating at Work, Simmons College professor emeritus Kolb and consultant Porter show us how we can negotiate for new opportunities and greater flexibility by questioning the status quo.
  • 3D Negotiation: Powerful Tools to Change the Game in Your Most Important Deals, by David A. Lax and James K. Sebenius. Single-mindedly absorbed with the face-to-face negotiation process, we often fail to recognize the ample opportunities we have to shape negotiations to our advantage through set-up and deal design, write Lax Sebenius principal Lax and Harvard Business School professor Sebenius in 3D Negotiation.
  • Bargaining with the Devil: When to Negotiate, When to Fight, by Robert Mnookin. When we find a potential counterpart morally repugnant, we might avoid negotiating with him or her altogether, but that isn’t always the best choice. Program on Negotiation chair and Harvard Law School professor Mnookin offers advice on how to make wise decisions about when to negotiate and when to fight with our toughest adversaries.
  • Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well, by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen. Absorbing and accepting feedback is a key negotiating skill, yet few of us are very good at it. The Harvard Negotiation Project’s Stone and Heen explain how to learn from even poorly delivered feedback—even as we long to be accepted just as we are.
  • Dealmaking: The New Strategy of Negotiauctions, by Guhan Subramanian. Most negotiation advice focuses on our interactions with those across the table. But what about our competitors—how can we effectively deal with them? To help us succeed in a range of complex negotiations, Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School professor Subramanian presents best practices from negotiations and auctions.
  • Getting to Yes with Yourself—and Other Worthy Opponents, by William Ury. Whether we’re aware of it or not, we often hold ourselves back in negotiation with self-sabotaging behavior. Program on Negotiation cofounder Ury’s book Getting to Yes with Yourself—in essence, a prequel to his bestseller Getting to Yes (co-written with Roger Fisher and Bruce Patton)—shows us how to overcome the internal obstacles to strong relationships and agreements.
  • The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World, by Michael Wheeler. Even when armed with sound negotiation advice, we may still find ourselves struggling to cope with the surprises that pop up at the bargaining table. In The Art of Negotiation, Harvard Business School professor Wheeler describes how to adapt by supplementing our careful plans with lessons on creativity and flexibility from jazz, sports, theater, and other realms.
