Project the Right Image to Negotiate Successfully

» Introduction
When you negotiate, who are you? To be more exact, what image do you project? How do others in the negotiation perceive you? There are times when you have to change your character, your mindset, and your personality when negotiating, in order to create the environment that leads to the successful outcome of the negotiation. There will be times when you値l have to be stern and there will be times when you値l have to be soft, but always try to genuinely be nice.

When you negotiate, who are you? To be more exact, what image do you project? How do others in the negotiation perceive you? There are times when you have to change your character, your mindset, and your personality when negotiating, in order to create the environment that leads to the successful outcome of the negotiation. There will be times when you値l have to be stern and there will be times when you値l have to be soft, but always try to genuinely be nice.

There痴 one political candidate that people have a varying range of opinions of. The political pundits say, the varying opinions stem from his lack of ability to connect with some people, based on the way he projects his image. Mind you, none of us will be able to connect with everyone, every time we negotiate, but there are 奏hings you can do to enhance the probability of connecting with people when you negotiate. Use the following 7 suggestions when you negotiate

1. Be humble. No matter how much expertise you possess on a subject matter, don稚 be a showoff. Being a know-it-all tends to turn people off.

2. Always use active listening skills when talking with someone and allow them to perceive that you池e actively listening by acknowledging their thoughts through the paraphrases you use.

3. When negotiating, genuinely set out to discover how you can help the other person achieve the goals they seek from the negotiation. (As an example, the other day, I spoke with another savvy negotiator from the Corning, NY area. I致e only known this individual for a few short months, but his warmth, knowledge of negotiation skills, and his sincere desire to help other people always comes through when we speak. The wholesomeness of his character and demeanor endears him to me. As such, I壇 go out of my way to assist him in his endeavors. When you negotiate, that痴 the type of model I suggest you adopt. Be a person that people like so much they壇 be willing to go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals.)

4. Be likable. Don稚 be a sourpuss when you negotiate. (There are times when you値l have to project such a demeanor, but only use that demeanor as a negotiation strategy when necessary.)

5. Be compassionate. If you have the upper hand in a negotiation, don稚 hammer the other person to submit to more concessions, simply because you池e in the 叢ower position. You never know when that type of attitude will come back to bite you. Somewhere in the future you may negotiate with that same person and she may be in the 叢ower position. She most likely will recall the troubled times you gave her and she may return the favor. When possible, it痴 nice to be nice.

6. Understand the value of reading body language accurately and use its covenants during the negotiation. Strive to become keen at reading body language to perceive a deeper meaning of thoughts conveyed throughout the negotiation. The additional insight gleaned from such will allow you to bond quicker with the other person, from which you can achieve a better appreciation of their perspective. I知 not suggesting you enhance your skills at reading body language to take advantage of the other person, I知 suggestion you do so to move towards the goals both of you seek from the negotiation.

7. When you negotiate, start out by putting the other person first. You may be thinking that痴 crazy! When you池e flying, the flight attendant announces, if the oxygen mask is deployed put it on your own face first, then assist others. That may be true when you池e flying, but when you池e negotiating, to the degree you understand the other person, you池e in a better position to help him and by helping him, you help yourself.


If you致e been reading these lessons over a period of time, based on the feedback I致e received from those that have, your negotiation skills have increased substantially. As such, more than likely, you池e superior than the average person, when it comes to negotiating. Use your skills to teach others how to achieve more out of life by allowing them to see how magnanimous you can be when negotiating. By doing so, you will become an even stronger, savvier, more insightful negotiator and everything will be right with the world.


The negotiation lessons are

キ When you negotiate, don稚 take advantage of people when you have the upper hand. You never know when their position may become stronger and at what point they may turn the tables on you to 組et even.

キ Always employ active listening skills when negotiating. Paraphrase questions, thoughts, and ideas to convey your understanding of the other person痴 position and perspective.

キ As you negotiate, genuinely display an appreciation for the other person痴 position. Make sure they know you池e not just viewing the negotiation from your perspective, but you also understand the perspective from which they view the negotiation. Use your body language skills to allow them to see, feel, and hear, your desire to seek the most favorable outcome for all parties involved in the negotiation.
