V.A.N.S. is much more than a short course. For many people, it acts as a starting point for a lifetime of skills building.
Our Negotiation Proﬁle questionnaire captures the conﬁdence of participants before the course begins. It picks up areas of high and low conﬁdence, and pinpoints which aspects need most attention. This revealing snapshot helps our coaches to draw up a Personal Development Plan for each trainee.
Before training, participants are encouraged to give us insight into their organisation and its approach to negotiation, via our online Capabilty Survey. This, combined with stakeholder analysis, allows our consultants to focus the training on optimising outcomes for the organisation as well as the individual.
Once V.A.N.S. is completed, participants use their Personal Development Plan as a roadmap to hone their skills over time. They also gain free access to the Scotwork Toolbox, a folio of online content, applications and tools to inspire and help them in future negotiations. Our Preparation Tool is invaluable for pre-negotiation planning, while the Scotwork App gives useful diagnostics, tips and techniques.
