Episode #52: Negotiations: Everything You Need to Prepare for a Successful Negotiation


When was the last time you advocated for something you wanted?

Maybe it was the location of the next family vacation, where to go for dinner, or what movie to watch for movie night.

Guess what you were doing? You were negotiating.

We often think of negotiations as something scary and very serious. Think old men, dark suites, long tables. 

But, what if a negotiation was more like the conversation you have when you're choosing your next family vacation?

Negotiations don't have to be scary or intimidating. They can just be a collegial conversation where you're simply advocating for a request.

I can help you get there.

I want you to be calmer and more confident in your next negotiation, and I want it to be successful. 

For that to happen, there are a few things you need to prepare ahead of time.

On this week's podcast I walk you through, step-by-step, the three things you need to do to prepare for a successful negotiation.

You'll learn:

  • How to get clear on what you want
  • How to make it a win-win
  • And, how to prepare for all the feelings of discomfort (yup, mindset is everything, especially in negotiations) that will inevitably come up.
