Swiss HLG and Biopôle are excited to present a Swiss HLG’s online workshop collaboration.


In this interactive 2,5 hour session you will learn everything about the basics of negotiations skills in a structured and very interactive way.

The focus of this session is to understand and partially practice the strategic and communicative skills needed to negotiate successfully across cultural and national boundaries with the main focus on :
• controlling the negotiating process through the use of listening and questioning skills
• adapting behaviour through the various phases of a negotiation
• training bargaining and closing techniques
• countering negotiating tactics and tricks
The speech will be complemented by examples, best and worst practices, exercises and checklists.
