In a recent episode of the HR business marketing podcast, A Better HR Business show, Ben spoke with Allan Tsang, International Negotiation Coach for Executives, about strategies to drive profits and foster collaborative work.

His unique skill set has helped clients succeed in high-stakes negotiations with industry giants like Google, Boeing, PepsiCo, and Microsoft.

He helps clients navigate negotiation complexities, create effective plans, and close mutually beneficial deals.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Allan and Ben talked about:

  • Key skills and behaviors for effective negotiation and conflict resolution within organizations.
  • How HR professionals can navigate the transition to consulting by mastering negotiation skills and closing profitable deals.
  • Addressing potential profit leaks due to inefficiency, pricing concessions, and scope creep through improved negotiation strategies.
  • Allan’s advice on giving clients autonomy in decision-making and managing their expectations regarding changes in project scope.
  • Techniques for stress inoculation and developing better negotiation skills over time.
  • And much more!

Thanks, Allan!
