    It is a well known fact that more businesses go bust due to lack of cash than through being unprofitable.  Within the Current Assets of your Balance Sheet, stock is your least liquid asset.

    Episode 7 - A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing!

    59:24

    If you have a Legal Department, use them! It is a complicated profession and an area of great risk for the Procurement Professional. Remember how we feel when an internal function bypasses Procurement and does a shocking job, which we then have to try and recover later! That said however, in our profession a reasonable level of Commercial and Contractual knowledge is essential as your career progresses.  In this podcast Sue and I discuss the Legal Aspects of Procurement, Contract Terms and Conditions, various commercial clauses and some specific special clauses along the way!  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/gary-tinsley/message

    The Importance of Preparation in Negotiations

    1:11:51

    Let’s get this right – Sales people have been trained in negotiation, body language and closing a sale for many years. Most of a private sector companies training budget is spent on training sales people, so why should we in procurement think that when they arrive at a negotiation that they are not prepared, of course they are! They may look comfortable, in full control of their body language and relaxed, talking about football and holidays but do not think for one second that they are not ready to negotiate, if they weren’t ready, they wouldn’t be here! In this episode we discuss the need to prepare and plan for a 100% ready sales person to be sat opposite us every time!

    Behavioural Skills in Negotiation

    49:43

    Sometimes when you’re watching a premiership football match, you see that player that seems to have that extra ½ second to think and steer the ball away from trouble, or deliver that killer pass for a goal, probably experienced in their late 20’s / early 30’s and know what to do at the right time. These are the attributes of a great negotiator. That ability to step back, pause, breathe and then make the right move, expressing completely planned control of their body language and actions.  This person will effectively combine body language with other areas, such as active listening and the use of emotions in a completely planned manner. They will know what they are doing and why they are doing it. It is the elements of Self Awareness and Self-Regulation that gives them the time to think, breathe and act accordingly. In this podcast Sue and I are going to talk about Behavioural Skills in Negotiation, the Soft Skill that make the difference, we hope you enjoy it! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/gary-tinsley/message
