Work with us and get Instant Impact. Ron Shapiro, our founder, and negotiations expert, sports agent, New York Times bestselling author, attorney, business leader, and educator. Experienced negotiators understand that the negotiation starts well before you get to the table. As a result, SNI strongly believes in using a tool, such as our Preparation Checklist, to prepare for negotiations. The best negotiators ask great questions and listen.
To improve this ability, we provide a model to help structure questions that get beyond the other side’s position and on to their interests. There are a few fundamental guidelines that skilled negotiators are aware of and keep in mind before making offers. Those that follow these principles maximize their return in any negotiation, while still allowing the other side to walk away satisfied. Series of techniques to overcome objections through a five-step process and develop specific answers to common objections that can be immediately applied. How to use negotiation tactics and how to recognize and respond to if the other side uses them.
Videotaped role play simulating real or realistic negotiations that allows participants to see themselves and be coached in real-time. SNI’s negotiation training includes extensive simulation for participants to practice their enhanced negotiation skills. This type of instant application provides the opportunity for managers to immediately assess the impact of the course on their teams’ effectiveness outside of the classroom. Whether it’s a conference, regional meeting, or executive retreat, sometimes the most effective message is short on time, but high on impact. SNI believes that instructor-led classroom training continues to be the most impactful method to drive sustained behavioral change. Within this modality, SNI offers classroom training ranging from a half-day to three-days in length. From adaptive learning platforms to interactive mobile training, SNI provides an array of virtual training solutions to meet the demanding needs of any organization.
We believe that in order to offer effective training it takes extensive effort before and after the event in the classroom. All participants are asked to complete a brief questionnaire prior to attending the program in order to assist with the customization process and ensure the content is personalized and impactful. This training usually takes place in a one or two-day format and is typically integrated with other initiatives in the organization. What kind of impact do we have? The best thing for me out of this course so far has been learning how to better prepare, how to map out the strategy, and understand the tenth or eleventh round, not just the first round.
I think Jeff is so engaging. He’s entertaining and tells some great anecdotes that really connect the points he’s talking about. It’s been really fun and engaging, and I’m definitely learning something new. What I’m really benefiting from today is the structure and the process to work with when I am involved in negotiations. The value of using precedents to inform my arguments and positions, and to help make sure that we all come out in a position where they are winning. I was very skeptical of SNI and their ability to help our organization at the start. We have a very talented group and did not initially grasp the benefits of working with SNI.
Working with SNI has made our group stronger and more confident than I could have ever imagined. Their guidance and partnership has helped our group not only create better deals with players and agents, it has helped us tremendously improve our internal processes and communication as well. There is no doubt that we are always very well prepared no matter what situation we encounter. SNI is now just another part of our Spurs family and we’re very grateful for their continuous support. Now more than ever, the principles of your Power of Nice seminar must be the principles for our doing business. With so much stress and uncertainty coming from events we can’t control, your systematic approach gives us the opportunity to do good deals and build relationships with respect to matters we can control. The Power of Nice is working in our daily lives as well.
