Every aspect of business, including management, sales, marketing, development, finance, procurement, production, legal, logistics, service, administration, engineering, etc., is impacted by effective negotiating techniques. Stronger negotiating abilities can be used and understood by all members of your team. Most importantly, your company’s performance will improve.
The Pearl Lemon Consultants negotiation consultancy team is uniquely suited to serve as either your partner and mentor in the negotiating process or to train your team to negotiate better outcomes for a wide range of goals and scenarios.
The team has successfully negotiated deals in every aspect of business and can bring that expertise and knowledge to the table to help businesses and teams across industries meet any number of negotiation challenges.
Here are just a few of the ways that our negotiation consultancy clients have benefited from working closely with us to solve the negotation challenges that were holding their business back:
Are you frantically trying to complete the deal by “throwing in” valuable services and goods? These pricey gifts could become profitable products by using our techniques for articulating and showing value.
Our negotiation consultancy experts will help you learn how to get the proper value for the goods and services you sell while still leaving clients and customers feeling that they got a ‘great deal’.
Larger bargains can be reached at the negotiating table by learning to recognize and reject typical negotiating strategies used by customers looking for a lower price.
Partnerships and acquisitions can be highly beneficial to any business, but only if agreements are negotiated in the way. Our negotiation consultancy experts have helped broker many such deals, both large and small, not only to the advantage of our clients but to all parties involved.
As your negotiation consultancy we offer a bespoke service that will provide you with just what you and your business needs, rather than trying to force feed you a one size fits all program that will be ineffective at best and a waste of money at worst.
That having been said, there are a number of common reasons businesses come to us for our negotiation consultancy expertise that may help you better understand what we do and how we can help you once you understand what they are:
Some people view business negotiations as a series of sneaky games and ego competitions used to obtain the upper hand by repeatedly intimidating, unbalancing, or flustering the opposing party. However, if your “victory” makes the other side angry, resentful, and doubt your integrity, this negotiating strategy is really naive and ultimately doomed to fail.
At Pearl Lemon Consultants, we define a win as one in which both parties recognize and respect the benefits they received and are more likely to establish a lasting bond that will result in more and better possibilities down the road. This concept serves as the cornerstone of our negotiation consulting strategy and emphasizes the significance of using leverage sensibly.
Basic leverage is a tool in the eyes of a negotiator striving for a quick victory. However, effective leverage is the capacity to influence others to adopt your point of view. Positive leverage is the difference between a business that prospers from lucrative, ongoing partnerships and one that customers can’t wait to stop doing business with.
One of the areas in which we can proudly say that Pearl Lemon Consultants negotiation consultancy team outstrips its competition by far is in the area of sales negotiations. We show teams of all sales – and who are tasked with selling almost anything – how to up their sales negotiation skills to achieve all of the following and more:
