How to Be a Better Negotiator in 2014. Guaranteed.

How to Be a Better Negotiator in 2014. Guaranteed.

“Absolutely. No doubt about it. You can be a more effective negotiator this coming year provided you do one thing differently. Do it faithfully and you’ll:

  • Make deals that could otherwise slip through your fingers;
  • Create—and capture—more value in the agreements that you reach; and
  • Resolve small differences before they escalate into costly disputes.

But there is a catch. This isn’t like those “weird little tricks” with bogus advice about losing belly fat or improving your credit score. This requires some work on your part. Not a lot, but you’ll have to keep at it. Given the upside, the return on your effort will be high.

The assignment is simple: keep a journal tracking every negotiation you undertake in 2014, large or small. It could be securing a promotion, dealing with a difficult customer, or saving a few bucks on your cable service.”

“If you’re diligent, you’ll make more and better deals. You’ll finish the year with a sense of accomplishment and greater confidence in your ability.

If you fail to make this small effort, but negotiate with people who are serious about enhancing their skills . . . well, best of luck.”
