Keep your eye on larger objectives. Negotiate with the right parties about the right issues.
Negotiators frequently start their preparation focused on the opportunity right in front of them, such as a job offer.

As you try to reduce ambiguity, you will think of people who might give you information, advice, or social support. Also, figure out who will speak up in favour of your proposal.

Great careers are not made in a vacuum. You need work and life partners, and negotiation is at the heart of finding ways to realise your path.
