Don’t take ‘no’ for an answer

Here’s a great story about how one of the biggest sports clubs/franchises in the world was born. But for non-football (soccer) fans, don’t worry, the story is not about football. At its heart is negotiation, a father’s love for his daughter and a man’s love for his dog – which was trumped only by his love of his team.

Negotiating Remotely

Negotiating from home

“Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born”                                      Nikola Tesla

Working from home has become the norm for many millions of people over the past weeks and months. There are a great many positives, but it is often all too easy to focus on the negatives – the current climate may make it feel hard, if not impossible, to advocate for yourself.

Negotiation in a crisis – is it different?

Negotiation in a crisis – is it different?

How many negotiations are taking place as you read this article?  I would suggest hundreds, if not thousands.  They will involve, policy, law, money, goods & services and all of the other variables that one would expect in any negotiation.  What sets apart negotiation in June 2020 from other times is the fact that many of these negotiations will (literally) involve life and death decisions.  Conversations taking place right now in board rooms and presidents’ offices about social distancing, remote working and when to re-open schools and shops will all have an effect on the way this pandemic plays out.

Transfer Negotiations – what our clients say

 

We do a lot of work with Premiership football clubs in conjunction with the Football Association, and this week we delivered a bespoke negotiation program to a select audience of Technical Directors from mainly Premiership clubs, including the Women’s game.

Dan Ashworth was Technical Director at the FA and was responsible for the appointment of Gareth Southgate amongst other things; before that he did the same role at West Bromwich Albion. He is now Technical Director at Brighton and Hove Albion, and so his experience of negotiations in the pressure cooker environment of the transfer world is second to none.

At the end of the program Dan was happy to share with us his thoughts on the day – here is what he had to say:
