Negotiation Tool #2 – Both Parties Must Feel Some Pain

 

You know you have negotiated a good deal when both parties walk away feeling just a little bit of pain.  To create a good, long-term relationship with the people you are negotiating with, you must make them feel like they got a good deal too.  If you push for everything and give in on nothing, you might feel great, but the other party feels horrible about the deal.

The art of negotiating is in finding that balance where you give enough to keep the other party motivated and interested in not only getting the deal done but feels good about doing business with you in the future (or would tell their friends to do business with you).

I have seen in my career that a hard-fought negotiation strengthens the relationship between the two parties.  And when the deal is done, you both get to celebrate its success.

Pro Tip:  Always have a few items when you are heading into a negotiation that are a list of things that are non-negotiable, and others that might not be so important to you. They might be important to the other party, but you’d be willing to give up to make the deal.

Negotiation Tool #1 – Alway’s Let the Other Person Go First

So many people race to state their position first in the negotiation yet there is absolutely no advantage for you to do so.  You miss a huge opportunity when you do this because you have no idea where the other party is going to start.

I want you to encourage the other party to go first and state their position.  That gives you the ability to react to it.  You might be surprised as to where they start in the negotiations.  It might be quite a bit higher than you expected.  And with that as a starting point you can negotiate them up.

My advice to you is be quiet and listen first.  I have found that when you request the other side to go first, they are often eager to do so.

 

Negotiation Tool #4 – Don’t Negotiate With Yourself

Ever get into a heated debate with someone, only to find that they are the ones doing all the debating?

I mean, they just keep going on and on about THEIR side, THEIR position, and why THEY are right.

These people make horrible negotiators. In fact, this is a great example of how to talk yourself right out of a deal. 

When negotiating, it’s best to state your position briefly, and then allow time for the other side to speak.
