We were on the receiving end of a customer service disaster and wanted a refund. The supplier said, “We don't do that.” We asked Venn Negotiation for help. With their coaching and support, we ended up getting 100% of our money back! For that, we will always be grateful for Venn Negotiation and would recommend them highly to anybody who is in the same predicament.

what you want

Get more of what you want!

When most people think of the word 'negotiation,' it evokes thoughts of Sun Tzu's "Art of War," chess, or even bullies in the boardroom. They use zero-sum thinking and operate from a place of scarcity, where if one party gets more, the other automatically gets less. There are clearly defined winners and losers even when they think they may be trying for a win-win scenario. At Venn Negotiation, we find that way of thinking outdated.

Venn Negotiation is an educational and consultative negotiation firm that aims to change the nature of negotiation. Offering individual and group negotiation training and negotiation services, Venn Negotiation helps individuals and businesses get more of what they want and provides them with the tools and techniques to negotiate for it.
