Why “Negotiating Skills for All Employees” Matters:
The purpose of negotiation is to achieve agreement through discussion and compromise. It is different from arguing because you’re not just trying to persuade another person you’re right and they’re wrong. You’re trying to achieve an objective—to get something you want or need. When you think of it that way, you see why you spend so much time negotiating. In most cases, you can’t just take or demand what you want or need. You have to reach agreements with other people to achieve your objectives. Negotiation is also about building, maintaining, and improving relationships. People often think negotiation is just a method of getting their way. But it’s much more than that. It’s really all about how we get along with other people.
The main points from this session on negotiation skills include:
- The purpose of negotiation is to achieve mutually beneficial agreements.
- Negotiation helps build, maintain, and improve work and personal relationships.
- When negotiating, look for shared interests rather than insisting on “my way or the highway.”
- Being a skilled negotiator will help you get along better with others and achieve your objectives.
