Strategies to change dynamics within a negotiation

Strategies to change dynamics within a negotiation
  • Emotion predicts action: A negotiator wants to know what you're thinking and will carefully track your emotion for clues. Choreographed emotions will call your opponent's bluff.
  • The  power of anger: For the opponent to concede to your demands, rising anger is more effective than static anger and rising anger is more effective than either rising or static happiness.

  • A rising surge of anger elicits fear of possible escalation into conflict and fear of no deal at all, so the opponent wants to cut losses by giving in. But you are in trouble if you're negotiating on values, not goods or if there's a power imbalance.

  • Taking action. Though anger studies are useful, caution is advised. The trick is to feign displeasure without showing aggression or disrespect.
