Now offered as a virtual course, taking place in a virtual classroom setting, 360° Negotiation Skills for Bankers incorporates a variety of training approaches to help bankers build strong negotiating skills and transfer those skills back to the workplace. The interactive design of this one-day course enables participants to experience and practice the most effective ways to negotiate with customers, dig deeper to uncover their true needs, cross-sell other bank services to strengthen the relationship, and sell the credit internally to the best advantage of the bank.
Participants will explore solutions to negotiating challenges that are both tangible and relevant to today’s banking environment. Through facilitated discussions, they will transform these solutions into specific strategies for improving their negotiating skills and reaching creative solutions that work for both the customer and the bank.
Upon completion of 360° Negotiation Skills for Bankers, participants will be able to:
- Explain the five-step negotiating process and apply it to customer and internal negotiations.
- Identify the five negotiating styles and determine when they are appropriate to use in a customer negotiation.
- Use active listening and questioning techniques to gain relevant information from customer conversations.
