Planning and NegotiationTo get anywhere in business or in life you need strong negotiation skills

Why do many negotiations fail? Even people with natural negotiation skills can sometimes fail to get what they want. So what is the missing link between what we want and what we get?

One of the most overlooked stages of any negotiation is the initial planning stage. Many people admit to cutting corners and flying by the seat of their pants. Often, negotiation in these circumstances can still be a success, but not always. And what if the one time your skills let you down is during one of the most important negotiation of your career?

Can you succeed without a plan? Maybe. But the truth is you will significantly increase your confidence, your readiness and your chance of success by preparing well. This isn't about intuition; it's about knowledge. Once you have the right tools and methods you can plan for any type of face-to-face or phone interaction and get much more predictable and positive outcomes. Where your goal is to influence someone or negotiate an outcome favourable to you, this extra set of negotiation skills will give you a distinct advantage.
