Skills and Strategies for Negotiation

Enrollment is Closed

About This Course

You have received an offer for a job you will enjoy, but the pay is lower than you expected. You ask your potential manager whether he is flexible in raising the pay and he says, “This job is not just about money. People work here with a lot of passion. I want you to think and set your priorities accordingly.” This situation is difficult to handle and is emblematic of how complex job negotiation can be.

Our course is designed based on the real-life experience of negotiation between the recruiters and job seekers in terms of employee rights, power, value, concession and many more. The complexity in negotiation itself creates opportunities for people who know how to negotiate better. Keeping this evident, this course aims to expose you to situations that need quick and strategic response. You will have better understanding of different negotiation theory with relevant examples once you complete the course. It will lead you to becoming one of the strongest candidates trained in effective negotiating strategies.

Like all other courses at BYLCx, this course uses a combination of video lecture, text summary, and quiz to help learners understand each concept perfectly before proceeding to the next. Whereas appropriate, the course provides template documents so that the learners can put their learnings into practice.
