For 25 years across 40 countries plus 26 of the American states, the Resource Development Centre (RDC) has helped thousands of people to conduct successful negotiations of every type. Many RDC clients have been businesses that have learned how to sell more successfully. Other clients have improved their buying skills. A few clients have applied the RDC techniques outside the business environment altogether – in such areas as international diplomatic services.
This package explores some of the similarities between negotiations in these different realms plus hostage and kidnap situations. The RDC philosophy is centred on business ethics and a principled approach to negotiation that maximises the value of the outcomes for both parties. It can even create additional value that neither party could find in isolation.
This package takes you through a system for planning and conducting negotiations that will steer you and your team to achieve your negotiation objectives. This is an internationally tried and tested process, with many current Blue Chip organisations applying it daily. All of the RDC clients using these techniques agree they are easy to implement, efficient to review and enable regular achievement of negotiation objectives.

The following is a selection of what people have said about the RDC negotiation techniques:
“We’ve developed more standard terminology to improve our communications and effectiveness, and we are more methodical with how we approach the customer to communicate our value and keep the opportunity from becoming a price negotiation” – JH, Microsoft.
“Lessons learnt from a Master: don’t negotiate unless you need to. Negotiation training made the team be aware, listen intently and make value based decisions” – BB, Microsoft.
“If you put Alan McCarthy in a tank with a great white shark, it wouldn’t last 2 minutes in the negotiation” – JB, SAS.
“We’ve used RDC’s Negotiation Training for the past two years as one of the required programmes that all of our sales personnel attend. What makes it so refreshing is that it is conducted by someone who can do it in the real world rather than the often seen ‘if you can’t do it, teach it’ style” – NE, SAP (UK).
