Negotiations are the conversation in which we are trying to get something you want, but it not just about what your needs knew, it is about creating a common platform that mutual benefits both or all parties involved to get something out of it.

To be successful in Negotiation, you need to walk in prepared.


1. Developing a negotiation foundation mindset -

Many of us come negotiation table believing it is a contagious process, a battle to win or you want to convince your partner to persuade the idea of what gives an advantage to you but not to them which called competitive bargaining you either win or lose.

The mindset should be mutual benefits everyone, if you made such type of mindset you start talking interest-based topics with basic principles such as anchoring, framing, labeling.

· Anchoring - anchoring is the most powerful toolkit in negotiation it is the practice of creating a reference point where the conversation will revolve around the negotiation table.

· Framing - framing is the elegant communication process of creating a perspective so decision-making can be made easy. You can frame around time, budget, & reputation as benefit your partner while anchoring mandatory in mind.

· Labelling - labeling is the greatest tool where you can label opposition internal problems, by doing they drop their weapons as a sign of appreciation.

2. Research prepare, & engage -

of course, research is the secondary process we start for negotiation when we starting to approach the party. The core foundation is asking diagnostic questions helps you gain clarity and confidence in the conversation towards an agreement. If you get stuck remember Ws, who, what, where, how to get to flow situation in laminar.

In the absence of facts and figures more tend towards reading the mind, body language, to determine a person's mind and convince them to do what you want to do.

3. engaging with your allies -

Engagement is necessary when we tend to pass the idea to one to another firstly, understand how influence works we have to set convince by persuading people to see what we want is winning strategy, but in the long term, it will hurt relationships between organizations big NO for large enterprises for this strategy. Influence commences from RECIPROCITY responding to a positive action with another positive action which is the practice of exchanging things for mutual relationships. CONSISTENCY also plays a big role in doing what you say you are going to do. AUTHORITY give position power to a person who are experts in a particular field will create influence by giving his superior set of knowledge.

4. conflict resolution styles -

We develop strategies for our fear, these are styles which reflects our responses towards any negotiation, they are part of our DNA or subconscious.

Thomas-Kilmann's conflict model illustrates how people typically behave when they forced with possible & actual rejection. Thomas Kilmann uses two dimensions in course of action is ASSERTIVENESS & COOPERATIVENESS. ASSERTIVENESS degree which is willing to fulfil its own needs. COOPERATIVENESS is the degree to which both persons trying to solve their concerns.
