Negotiation Essentials: Planning for Negotiation


 Duration: 1.5 hours

In your negotiations with stakeholders, have you ever felt that you have compromised a lot in order to arrive at a solution?

Alternatively, have you been in situations where you have felt that the negotiation process is not heading anywhere?

At the workplace, you may often face conflict and disagreement while working with different organizational stakeholders such as vendors, clients or even other employees. This, in turn, will require you to negotiate with stakeholders to drive home your point.

Negotiation is not about winning; it is about getting the best possible solution to a particular business problem or transaction.

Ideally, a successful negotiation is a situation where you can make concessions that mean little to you, while giving something to the other party that means a lot to them. Your approach to negotiation should foster goodwill, regardless of the differences in party interests.

A good negotiation leaves each party satisfied and ready to do business with each other again. However, to perform well on the negotiation table, you will have to do extensive planning and execute your plan accordingly.
