Prepare your conversations and negotiations

 

Tips and assistance for the systematic preparation of important discussions and negotiations, including body language. If the result of the conversation has consequences, the professional support is worthwhile. Learn how to prepare for your important conversations.​

Overview

So let us begin anew – remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Prepare your conversations and negotiations

 

Are you facing rather difficult negotiations with customers who are always dissatisfied and negative? Do you keep asking your boss to raise your salary without success? You have to make clear statements or wishes to your employees, but don’t want the working atmosphere to be affected or tense? Do you sleep badly because well-formulated eloquence is not one of your talents? Does so much depend on the next conversation that every word counts?

 

 

 

Everywhere is Babylon …

 

Unfortunately, communication is not always easy. Sometimes we say something and then suddenly realize that what we said was interpreted quite differently by the person we were talking with.

Usually this happens in conversations where we try to convince other people of something – be it a special offer, or ourselves, selling a point of view, or some kind of necessity. But if we don’t get to the point fast enough and precisely, others quickly lose interest and the desired attention and opportunity to convince, fades. The conversation has failed!

 

 

 

Let’s talk about it! – What I offer

 

To ensure that your conversations are a success, I help you to …

  • … familiarize yourself with effective communication strategies beyond the textbook
  • … expand your psychological knowledge and skills
  • … benefit from practical experience instead of purely theoretical advice
  • … deal with even the most difficult people in negotiations
  • … create a relaxed atmosphere in which many things become easier
  • … remain calm, self-confident, authentic and convincing

… so you don’t need any magic tricks up your sleeve. Then your conversations will be more successful!

For those who want to be on the safe side and play fair, the best thing is to learn the art of speaking and communicating in all its aspects. To those people I recommend the training Presentation Skills I-IV as private lessons.

 

In the right tone of voice you can say anything, in the wrong one, you cannot.

George Bernard Shaw

Your coach

For many years I have been helping people convincingly present themselves and their message. Sometimes for the stage and sometimes for a conversation. As part of the preparation for important discussions, I pass on what is important in my experience: You learn to be fully present and so fully access your skills, your knowledge, your offer. I help you so that your message is heard and understood. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology, and rhetoric.

What clients say

 

I started to work with Karsten in private one-on-one coaching and it helped me to have more meaningful conversations.

Best presentation skills trainer I’ve ever met. Karsten gave me the right feedback to improve my presentation and didn’t skimp on any important detail. I particularly appreciate how he took the time to explore my content and take the audience’s place to make sure every word hits the mark. He shares his knowledge and his experiences in the corporate world very generously. Karsten is a very stimulating and, when necessary, very calming personality. He really wants the best for his clients and I think he is the best in his field.

17 tips for facial expressions in speeches and presentations

When the topic of body language appears in the context of the speech, it is usually about gestures and a solid stand. Facial expressions are discussed, if at all, with the hint to smile. This is a pity because it has a lot to offer as well as the potential to harm if it is not appropriate. What does not fit the personality and role of the speaker is unintentionally funny, damages credibility and distracts from the content and the message.

The article deals with what it is worth paying attention to as a speaker concerning facial expressions.

Situations for which conversation preparation is helpful

 

Job interview, clarification, appraisal interview, job interview, feedback interview, salary discussion, annual interview, contract extension, salary increase, target agreement, negotiations, price discussions, debates, arguments, discussions, disputes, pro-and-contra talks, consensus, dialogues, discourse, decision-making interviews, development discussions, personal interviews, cooperation talks, interviews, exchange of experiences, critical interviews, assessment centers, small-talk, stress interviews, situational interviews, multimodal interviews, standardized interviews, semi-standardized interviews, open interviews, purchasing negotiations, elevator pitch, two-way conversation, convincing talk, briefing, group discussion, meeting, meeting, mediation interview, counseling, action recommendations, project discussion, …

Basically, every conversation benefits from a professional preparation. In practice, the decision to provide professional assistance in preparing for a conversation is based on the ratio of expected benefits to outlay.
