20%+X BETTER RESULTS
IN INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS
A lot of potential profits are often left on the table in negotiation because negotiators lack the required skills. These losses are unnecessary, since good negotiating techniques are easy to learn. Unlike many other ‘soft skills’, these techniques are based on hard facts and can be measurably improved using training and the Quantitative Negotiation method.
The facilitator: Dr Rasmus Tenbergen is a specialist for the Harvard Concept of Principled Negotiation. He studied political science and public administration at the Free University of Berlin and at Harvard University focusing on negotiations.
DOING BUSINESS IN …
At all our culture-specific training sessions, your employees will be given essential information about countries and regions. They’ll work out strategies for dealing with differences; they’ll gain an insight into values, norms and communication styles; they’ll discover strategies for developing trust-based relationships by working through realistic simulations. They can develop the necessary mindset and skillset for working in Russia.

Successful Presentations IN ENGLISH
TRAINING FOR NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS
In an intercultural context, language skills are important, but grasping issues such as ‘politeness vs. directness’, giving criticism, and body language is equally essential. In this presentation workshop, the focus is on all three presentation areas: language, communicating with the audience, and refining presentation skills. Your employees will receive valuable tips and tools for presentation, feedback and discussion.
The facilitator: Dr Paul Skandera holds German and American citizenship. He is a Professor of Business English at the Management Center Innsbruck, and an English lecturer at the University of St. Gallen and the University of Basel.

I really enjoyed both days. The wide variety of elements – tools, practical examples and soft factors – made the training lively and engaging, and the two very different trainers complement each other perfectly. Back at work I found it easy to apply what I had learned.
