Jeanette Nyden

Commercial Contracting Coach

Training and Coaching

I help contract professionals master the contracting process from documentation and negotiation to contract management by providing tactical, customized mentoring, coaching and training programs. Since 2003, I’ve been offering contract negotiation skills mentoring, training and coaching services to companies as small as 60 million in revenue and as large as Fortune 500 powerhouses.

I am a recognized expert in the contracting field having co-authored Getting to We: Negotiating Agreement’s for Highly Collaborative Relationships, authored Negotiation Rules! A Practical Approach to Big Deal Negotiations and co-authored The Vested Outsourcing Manual: A Guide for Creating Successful Business and Outsourcing Relationships.

I have worked with organizations such as PG&E, Esterline, KLX, TD Bank, CIBC Bank, Brookfield Johnson Controls, CH2MHill, T-Mobile, Jones Lang LaSalle, and Microsoft. I also was an adjunct professor at Seattle University and have taught courses at the University of Tennessee’s Center for Executive Education.

“You gave me another ah-ha moment just like you do in every conversation I have with you.” M. D., Senior Director and lead negotiator.

Unique Approach

I have a valuable skill set that most organizations desperately need. I am a lawyer who understands business operation needs to form a high performing customer/supplier relationship, and a business consultant who understands the legal terms and conditions.  I’ve personally been involved in deals as small as a preferred vendor agreement for a privately held manufacturer and as large as re-negotiating two outsourcing deals worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Are you ready to enhance your team’s skill set? Great. Let’s set up a time to talk to about the specific, financial, operational and emotional upside to enhancing your team’s contracting skills.

On A Personal Note

I’ve been a lawyer for more than 25 years and successful consultant for 15 years. While I am licensed to practice law in Washington State, I no longer practice law in a traditional way. I earned my B.A. and Juris Doctorate from Southern Illinois University. (Go Salukis!) I am a mom to two lovely girls. The saying the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree has a whole new meaning to me now! I live in Seattle and in my free time, I love doing outdoorsy activities like biking, hiking and kayaking.
