We’re constantly negotiating with people in our daily interactions. Not all negotiations are the same — some may be important, while others may seem trivial.
In its most simplest form, a negotiation is a discussion, set up or intended to produce a settlement or agreement.
By becoming a better negotiator, we can:
- Get things done faster.
- Help others improve what they do and how they do it.
- Create more collaboration with others.
- Take on new or better projects.
- Facilitate processes to help others achieve what they want.
Learning to be a better negotiator will also boost our self-confidence, which means we’ll be more willing to challenge ourselves to do new things or ask for what we want.
