Negotiation without Friction?

By
Mortgage and Lending with HOPE Lending LLC

THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IS THAT OF LEARNING HOW TO NEGOTIATE WITH OTHERS WITHOUT FRICTION.

Experts in negotiation handle the process so smoothly that discussions hardly seem like negotiations at all. While the word negotiation itself conjures up visions of cigar-chomping adversaries pounding the table to emphasize their demands, the best results are achieved when all the parties involved are able to put themselves in the others' shoes and arrive at an agreement that is beneficial to everyone involved. Whether you are negotiating a higher salary, a new job, or the acquisition of a company, your chances of success are far greater when you approach the situation positively and with a clear objective in mind. It also helps to understand the motives of others involved and to have in-depth knowledge of the subject under discussion. Finally, approach every topic with an open mind-don't simply try to bully others into accepting your proposal or point of view.

NO means "Negotiation ON"

I heard an interesting story about negotiation and also persistence. One gentleman I spoke with today said that children are the best negotiators. He said his child wanted an ice cream on the way back from somewhere and the child kept asking and he the father kept saying "no" but eventually has most children she got her way. So when someone says no think of the word as meaning "NEGOTIATION ON" and remember don't take no for an answer.

That is an interesting point.  Had the parent changed the child's mind into something else there would have been some negotiating.  Giving into him that way I'm not sure any negotiating really happened.  But yes, the child would have continued trying to negotiate!
