Influencing and Negotiating Skills: Getting What You Want

influencing_large_200Are your negotiators getting plenty of experience in negotiations? If so, and it's all they're getting, then it's time they stopped. Because what they need to get in every deal they make is more than experience. They need to get everything they want! Every time. This means being hard-nosed to the point of rudeness. Staying focused and unbending. Learning to be a master gambit player. Brushing aside emotional ploys and ambushes. And crafting the deal so that the other side say "Thanks" and mean it. These are the rules of playing the Negotiating game. When you play for experience, you just get lessons. When you play by the rules, you get what you want.
