Services: Business Coaching & Workshops

Customised business workshops

Plutonic Zoo services are highly customised. We value the business coaching format for individuals and the interactive workshop format for teams and groups. Effective coaching can clarify your individual wisdom and help formulate the best way forward given your personal goals. Interactive workshops can accelerate learning for teams and groups, from each other as well as the facilitator.

On this page we share details of our conflict handling coaching and negotiations workshop. If you are interested in discussing how you or your organisation can benefit from our business coaching and workshop services please or contact us. We will be keen to discuss your situation and goals with you, to jointly decide if and how we can best help.

Negotiations and conflict handling

In our 25 years hands-on experience in business negotiations we have recognised core negotiation principles. Negotiating has an art as well as a science component. Two parties often have different backgrounds and think in different paradigms. When you try to define common ground and resolve differences it requires insights into yourself, your party, and the other party. Effective insights allow you to be creative in order to find alignment. This creates an environment within which you can formulate agreements that have maximum practical value, and establish business relationships that are sustainable.

We have several engagement formats on offer, see sections below.
