With years of procurement training and experience under their belts, most people still conclude below-average deals. Top procurement achievers achieve their successes not only through strict application of procurement policies and methods but because they have realised that people are at the heart of procurement. It is people that give better deals to other people - communication is the main contributor to procurement success.

This 2-day workshop focuses on making communication principles practical.

You will learn

  • How to effectively communicate to influence all people., About communication that influences and persuades people, that builds relationships, that lets your suppliers want to work with you., How to communicate in a way that creates and sustains great supplier relationships., The model provides a framework for better understanding communication; it shows each individual where their preferences are on the framework; and it makes it practical for their organisation and procurement requirements., Each delegate will receive the award-winning ‘2interact communication profile’. The workshop uses the profile as the basis for understanding how people differ in their communications - which is critical for every procurement professional that wants to succeed., In addition (if applicable) a team profile will be generated to show tendencies within the team and tendencies of the team with other people or teams., The profile shows preferences in 2 areas, namely the style of communication and the behaviour in communication, understanding your own preference will allow you to change your approach.,
