Negotiation Skills

What is Negotiation?

negotiation skills

Negotiation involves movement from the first offer each party makes to a common position they are prepared to settle at. The most appropriate way to discover that a common solution is to negotiate by trading with the other parties.

A skilled negotiator improves their performance to the extent that they cease conceding unilaterally and become skilled in trading.
