Negotiating is an art you are born with, nothing to be ashamed of. But there is a right way to do it, and an awful way that leaves the other party with a bad taste in their mouth; you could be using right now.
You can change that right away because the negotiating genie in you must come up at one point or another as long as there are options to choose from. It doesn’t even have to be about money or business. It could be about time; you want to watch the fashion channel and your partner wants to watch football.
When there’s only one TV set in the house, you could opt for a vote or tackle each other, fairly I hope, through negotiation. It doesn’t have to end up with one of you leaving the house to go and watch TV at a friend’s house, life is all about negotiating. If you do it right, with lots of respect, you could win your partner over to 45 minutes of The Best Runway Looks At Paris Fashion Week.
But don’t underestimate your partner’s ability to swing the club to his corner and have you watching 90 minutes of Real Madrid vs Barcelona scoring against each other in the La Liga.
It all depends on how well you or your partner can apply the Dos and keep off the don’ts of negotiating. You definitely need to arm yourself ahead of time to avoid saying something you think is fine but end up hurting someone your care about.
