Negotiation is not what we think it is.
Negotiation is a skill that all successful business minds and influencers in society learn, master and successfully apply.
Yet at the same time, it is a crucial skill very few of us are ever taught.
As a result, most of us battle through life and business… ‘winging it’, getting it wrong, damaging relationships, ‘settling for less’, missing out and often making a massive mess along the way.
How to get the very best outcome requires, in my experience, an approach that is counter-intuitive to how we have been taught to play.
In this episode I explore both the art and science of negotiation.
- what is a negotiation and why it is not what we think!
- how so many ‘get it wrong’
- how careful preparation will avoid costly mistakes
- specifics on what that careful preparation looks like
- how to initiate and enter into the conversation strongly
- how to lead the process well
- how to navigate what can play out
- how to reduce the likelihood of unfavourable outcomes
I’ll also share a series of incredibly powerful tools & techniques that can assist you to improve and develop as a compelling & successful negotiator.
The art & science of negotiation, applied well, can have significant impact on each and every relationship you have.
As leaders in business, family, and life, strengthening outcomes and improving relationships is such a critical part of how we succeed and grow.
Once again, enjoy and I look forward to hearing of your successes!
