Get clear on your negotiation goals

There are 3 key questions you should ask yourself:

  • What's the best possible outcome
  • What's your bottom line? This refers to the least acceptable offer. If you're the seller, what's the lowest offer you'd be willing to accept? And if you're the buyer, what's the most you'd be willing to pay?
  • What's your plan B? Your "BATNA" - your best alternative to a negotiated agreement. What are you going to do if you don't reach an agreement?

Determine your core negotiation strategy (CNS)

Determine your core negotiation strategy (CNS)

It means finding the doorway that you want to enter the negotiation through. That could be the doorway of safety and liability or of value, the doorway of competition or of future business.

Understand your negotiation signature

Understand your negotiation signature

That signature is the habitual way that you go about a negotiation. Understanding your default signature helps you know what you're working with.

Some people try to go in and beat the other person up on price. Other people are really intimidated, reticent, and afraid to ask for anything.

Build Motivation

Build Motivation

One of the most powerful things you can do in a negotiation is draw out why the other party wants to make a deal. You can do this by asking questions and building negotiating roots.

Asking questions about their competition and why they want to work with you -- what's in it for them -- builds your negotiating counterpart's motivation.

Play the reluctant part

Play the reluctant part

  • Use your body language to communicate your reluctance, to communicate you're not really eager to make a deal: sit back from the table and keep the tension in your bodies low
  • You can manipulate your voice to sound more reluctant: speak slowly and softly. 
  • Reluctant parties qualify their language. They don't show excitement. Everything is qualified and subdued.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
