ICMA Women's Network France – « La négociation au féminin », Paris, 2 February 2017

Cette deuxième édition avais pour thème: « La négociation au féminin ».

La négociation est un art que l’on exerce tous, chaque jour, sans même s’en rendre compte. Et pourtant ! Le seul fait de prendre conscience que l’on est dans une situation de “négociation” peux rendre nerveux et faire perdre ses moyens. Que ce soit dans sa vie privée ou au travail, pour conclure un contrat, convaincre un client ou solliciter une promotion, il est judicieux de connaître les techniques de base de la négociation afin de ne pas être déstabilisé au premier argument contrariant.

Quels sont les arguments qu’une femme va plus facilement mettre en avant ? Quelles sont les qualités ou les sensibilités sur lesquelles les femmes peuvent s’appuyer pour réussir une négociation ? Négocier est-il synonyme de séduire ? Comment les hommes peuvent-ils plus facilement convaincre les femmes et comment les femmes négocient-elles ensembles ?

C’est à ces différentes questions que Vincent François a très aimablement accepté d’apporter des éléments de réponse au cours de cette soirée, et vous donnais quelques conseils pratiques. Vincent François, anciennement négociateur au GIGN (Groupe d’Intervention de la Gendarmerie Nationale) a fondé le cabinet Semio Nego afin de mettre son expertise au service des entreprises, en proposant des formations, du conseil ou du coaching. Il est notamment spécialisé dans la gestion de crise ou de conflit et les situations à risque.

La présentation a été ensuite illustrée par des retours d’expérience sur des négociations vécues avec plus ou moins de succès.
