What is Negotiating Skills?

Negotiation is a way in which two or more parties sort out differences and come to an understanding that has benefits for all the parties involved. Such deals have to be struck everywhere from our humble personal relationships to two or more nations getting together to come to an understanding.

A certain set of skills is required to be able to negotiate successfully without alienating anyone in the process. These, like any other skills can be learned and sharpened with practice. It is almost a kind of art. Every situation demands a different modus operandi, but there are three things that need to be remembered for any negotiation:

  • Your personality and your attitude towards the issue being resolved highly impact the negotiation.
  • Skills like active and patient listening, effective speaking, assertiveness, solution oriented thought process and the confidence of making a decision are qualities of a good negotiator.
  • Knowledge gives you power. It is important to be prepared for a negotiation and gain all kinds of information about the issue being handled for an influencing position in the process.

Do not let the way you negotiate become a roadblock in forming long-term relationships either at work or otherwise. Remember that everyone has a valid point of view and concern and the objective of the negotiation is to come to an agreement that is not unprofitable for anyone.
