As a consultant and entrepreneur, I often find myself relying upon the cooperation of others to meet key business objectives. The tools I learned from Common Outlook have helped me to be more curious, and more open to different perspectives. This has improved my ability to negotiate and manage difficult conversations, so that I am now better equipped to handle these situations in order to achieve a “win-win” outcome.

Two months after taking the course I have not only implemented but continue to use the effective tools that were taught to me throughout this one-day session. This workshop has definitely provided me with the discipline to better prepare for meetings.

The workshop provided me with a number of valuable tools and thoughts to assist me with the negotiation process. Today, I conscientiously reduce the number of assumptions I make before and during a negotiation, making me a more effective negotiator.

Common Outlook’s Effective Negotiation Skills Workshop is one of the few training courses which, after a number of months, I see has long-term value. I would highly recommend it.

This course well exceeded my expectations — best course of this kind I’ve taken since the Xerox sales course in 1987.

The Negotiations Skills Workshop that I attended with Common Outlook had a life changing impact. My communication with family, friends and colleagues has become more of a “win-win”. I was so impressed with the workshop that I convinced the team at Common Outlook to present a seminar to members of a professional body of which I’m a member. The response was very enthusiastic. I recommend the Negotiation Skills Workshop to anyone with a progressive mindset who is striving for a successful life.

Common Outlook had a significant impact on my Central and South American Senior Executive team.  Common Outlook’s advice and training provided the confidence and creativity my country heads needed to handle the ensuing economic crisis with great success.  We applied their input to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of transactions; their input had a very positive impact on our financial results.

Common Outlook’s Negotiation Skills Workshop redefines what negotiation is and what it should be. The course definitely enhanced the ‘outlook’ and ability of each participant in a truly positive manner.

Common Outlook’s consultants were very professional and thorough in their approach. They were keenly focused on knowing our challenges and presenting powerful and practical ideas for addressing them. Their work has produced the behaviour change I was looking for. Common Outlook’s post-workshop surveys helped confirm the impact their work has had on our staff’s behaviour. Thank you!
