Negotiating Across Culture


Why should you take this seminar?


“In business, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.” Dr. Chester L. Karrass


· Even if you are a skillful negotiator in your own country and in your own culture, those skills are not necessarily portable to other countries or other cultures.  If you aren’t skillful, you may not be successful;

· Studies have proven that success in the world of globalization depends, first and foremost, on one’s ability to communicate and negotiate effectively under very different cultural environments;

· This seminar will help those conducting international business avoid both strategic and tactical blunders that could result in loss of profit and embarrassment;

· With the skills learned in this seminar, companies can save time and money and increase the ROI of their global ventures.


The Participants will learn how to:


· Identify and plan for key issues and challenges of cross-cultural negotiations;

· Build a cross-cultural negotiation team that will effectively overcome challenges;

· Gather information and build relationship for a cross-cultural negotiation;

· Negotiate cross-cultural contracts successfully;

· Identify quality interpreters and translators and how to work with them;

· Effectively handle cross-cultural contract details.
