Americans believe that a lack of questions demonstrates a lack of interest. Therefore, in this seminar the participants will learn exactly how and when to ask which questions, and how to use proven question-paraphrase techniques.
The German style of negotiation often leads to frustration and anger on the American side. Americans expect their negotiation partners to be open to persuasion and to make concessions when the time is right. Therefore, this seminar teaches participants how to use a proven system for planning and making concessions which protects their real positions and doesn´t damage the negotiation atmosphere.
Participants will learn how to answer objections skillfully. Americans often use tactics to create pressure, they usually use verbal response and special questioning techniques to answer objections and avoid pressure themselves, and they often use tricks which are considered to be unfair by German negotiators to gain an advantage in the negotiation.

The proven strategies, tactics, and techniques, are learned through question and answer conversations, practical exercises, structured and free role plays, and intensive feedback sessions.
