8 Steps of Negotiation

8 Steps of Negotiation for Business Owners

Negotiating skills for Business Owners

Every single day, in both business and personal life, we find ourselves negotiating. You may feel that your ability to be a strong negotiator solely relies on which party is more passionate about the outcome. However, there are key strategies you can implement so that you’re always prepared to excel in a negotiation, no matter how big or small the matter.

Negotiating is a true skill that can be learnt and perfected over time.

This trading process all comes down to value, negotiation strategies and how you adjust your position in order for both sides to come to an agreement.

Scotwork’s fundamental 8 Steps of Negotiation include Prepare, Argue, Signal, Propose, Package, Bargain, Close and Agree (see image below). These steps can be instrumental in guiding business owners to a successful result.

With thoughtful planning, clear objectives, thorough research, flexible concession and negotiating dialogue, you can step into any negotiation level-headed and with confidence.
