The Red Sheet Tools

Red Sheet is driven and supported by a diverse and world-leading collection of resources which are accessible in a choice of ways. Filled with expert knowledge and interactive learning opportunities, these tools will boost your skills development and guide you in conducting effective planning to achieve success in any negotiation.

Central to our negotiation approach is the core Red Sheet methodology upon which the original A1 poster is based. This tool – whether in the popular physical format or in the form of a digital web application (app) – forms the focal point for preparing for and delivering a specific negotiation. It incorporates a step-by-step process with checks to guide you through the stages of negotiation, and it enables a team to collaborate around a single plan.

Our selection of Red Sheet versions provides a range of process options tailored to different types of negotiation. The Red Sheet is a 15-step planning approach designed for high-value, complex or team-based negotiations. Our 6-step Red Sheet Lite version is based on the original process, but adapted to suit less complex, day-to-day negotiations, and the Red Sheet Nano is perfect to support simple or individual negotiations.

The Red Sheet planning tool is also available digitally as an app through Red Sheet Online. This comprehensive tool grants access to a vast catalogue of negotiation resources, planning processes, invaluable tactics and techniques, body language modules and guidance on negotiation across cultural divides. Red Sheet Online, available through subscription, facilitates learning and development as well as practical implementation of the Red Sheet approach using a wealth of written, interactive, visual and video modules – making it a complete digital negotiation resource.

Determine your negotionality® – your specific current and required negotiation personality – using our online psychometric assessment. This tool will help you understand your personality based upon the traits relevant to negotiation and the specific behaviour shifts required to maximize outcomes for different types of negotiation and when dealing with different cultures.

The Red Sheet competency assessment measures your current skills and capability against 15 core negotiation competency points. This allows you to identify areas of strength and areas where further learning and development would be particularly beneficial.

Our award-winning book, “Negotiation for Procurement Professionals” by CEO Jonathan O’Brien is available as an optional extra to support your Red Sheet learning experience. It provides a firm background for applying the Red Sheet method, and makes an excellent tool for reinforcing your journey to negotiating excellence.

We also offer a range of discrete micro digital learning modules to equip you with some simple planning tools when preparing for different aspects of a negotiation. Available through our Store, these short interactive multimedia modules are ideal for building core competencies, topping up your skillset or clarifying your strategy for a specific negotiation event.
