Overview

When you start a negotiation, there is a great deal that you don't know. No matter how much homework and research that you've done in order to better understand the other side of the table and their position, there will always be things that you don't know.

What You'll Find Inside:

  • GOT TO KEEP 'EM SEPARATED - ROLES IN NEGOTIATING
  • YOU WANT A BARGAIN? LEARN HOW OTHER CULTURES BARTER
  • FUNNY MONEY AIN'T SO FUNNY WHEN IT'S YOUR MONEY
  • TESTING THE WATERS: DOES THE OTHER SIDE REALLY MEAN THAT?

This means that there will be a great deal that you will have to learn while the negotiation is going on. In order for this to happen, you are going to have to master the skill of exploring what is possible during the negotiation.

Your goal during the negotiation has to be to use your exploring skills to seek understanding and possibility. You'll never know what the other side is going to be willing to agree to until you ask them.

A key part of developing your negotiating exploring skills is to understand the different roles in every negotiation. Who has what roles may be influenced by the different cultures that are involved in your negotiations.

If you don't take the time to fully explore what is possible in your negotiation, then you may not be able to reach a deal with the other side. All too often in today's business environment we read about major deals falling apart. We need to study these events and understand why they happened and how we can avoid a similar fate.

There are vast arrays of negotiating tools that are available to you in order to assist you with your exploring. With exotic sounding names such as the "krunch" tactic, "nibbling", and even the "reverse auction" each of these exploring tools is available for you to use in order to get the best deal possible.

This book has been written to provide you with a complete overview of what the negotiating skill of exploring is. We'll be taking a look at the benefits of exploring, the tactics used, and what kind of results you can expect. Read the book and you'll become a more skilled negotiator!

Meet the Author

Professional negotiating is not just a business, it's a science. Nobody knows more about the science of negotiating than Dr. Jim Anderson.

"I don't embrace excuses for why your last negotiation was not successful, I embrace solutions."

Over the last 25 years, Dr. Anderson has transformed failing negotiators worldwide. Dr. Anderson will turn these missed opportunities into successful deals.

Dr. Jim Anderson has spent over 25 years negotiating everything from small sales with individual owners of companies to large scale military project contracts with teams of sales negotiators.

He realizes that unless you are a lawyer or a Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) banker, you probably don't think of yourself as an everyday negotiator.

In today's work environment you can find yourself in negotiations with a vendor, another department, or even a state or local government official very quickly.

Unless you know what to do (and what not to do!), you can quickly feel overwhelmed.

In his books on negotiating, Dr. Anderson offers his insights on how to develop your negotiating skills so that you can close more deals, make more money, and have more satisfaction.

Dr. Anderson's company, Blue Elephant Consulting, uses its unique negotiating evaluation tools to show technical professionals, technical departments, and professional associations how to evaluate their current negotiating skills, determine what needs to be improved, and then provides proprietary speaking , consulting, group conference call coaching, and digital training products and services to help implement these changes.
