handshake detail from Treaty of Ghent

Negotiation Training

Training specialists at Lapin Negotiation Services have a proven track record of designing and delivering highly effective and relevant learning programs to Fortune 100 companies that have had long-lasting impact. These programs have produced measurable and considerable results furthering our clients’ business objectives and thereby generating substantial and swift returns on training investment.

Account teams, sales, contracting, sourcing, and procurement divisions, and others who engage in regular negotiations, often leave significant unclaimed value on the table. Additionally, in the process of negotiations, they frequently cause distressed relationships – a costly consequence of a suboptimal negotiation process.


A common cause for this corporate-wide weakness and uncontained cost is failing to invest sufficiently in the development of highly skilled negotiators through intensive training and coaching.

Our Corporate Education Team provides custom, client-centered negotiation programs:

  • Our interactive training initiatives are customized and tailored to our client environment, reflecting both content and complexity of negotiations in which they typically engage.
  • Our philosophy is to focus on and incorporate real-time live issues and challenges into the session so that there is an immediate application and seamless transference from classroom training to conference room table.
  • In addition to the design and delivery of training sessions, we also work with our clients to devise strategies, programs, and incentive plans to ensure continued impact, performance, and improvement.
  • We also work with our clients to develop small teams of negotiation “black belt” specialists within the organization, to serve as internal negotiation support and coaching experts. This builds a strong corporate negotiation capability and culture within the organization.

Negotiation Consulting

At Lapin Negotiation Services, we advise, coach, and support negotiation teams on specific negotiation challenges and guide them to successful and satisfying outcomes.

Often, negotiation teams lack skill, experience, and process to advance complex negotiations toward an optimal outcome. Sometimes negotiators are just too close to the negotiation to have a fresh and unsullied perspective. These dynamics frequently produce inefficient, distressed, or stalled negotiations, with suboptimal outomes and eroded relationships. In these types of situations, it would be invaluable for you to retain our negotiation consultant services to assist you in your negotiations.


Our specialists will consult with, advise, support, and coach your account management, business development, sales, procurement, legal, contracting, and sourcing teams. They will guide your teams through diligent preparation, carefully devised strategy, orchestrated process, and creative thinking. This will result in superior and sustainable outcomes, while generating value and building strong relationships.

Negotiation Facilitation

Trained and experienced negotiation facilitators at Lapin Negotiation Services design effective group processes and have successfully facilitated many complex multi-party negotiations.

When negotiations involve multiple interest groups, such as in environmental, land usage, regulatory, resource allocation, and public policy negotiations, talks can spiral into cycles of unproductive interactions with much wasted time and no resolution. In addition, these kinds of negotiations require very careful planning with regard to issues such as which groups need to be represented, who will represent them, and consensus on the agenda and process to be implemented.


To ensure an efficient, productive, and constructive process, it could be crucial for you to retain the services of a neutral negotiation facilitator from Lapin Negotiation Services.

Our expert facilitators will perform all the necessary pre-negotiation work, and engage with all interest groups to design and convene a highly effective meeting. We will also facilitate the negotiation to ensure that it remains productive and efficient at all times.
