The Art of Negotiation is an art; you can get better and better with it. If you feel that you don’t have an innate talent for negotiations, don’t be disappointed because these skills can be honed and developed with the proper training and practice. People who always speak good things may feel that they are good negotiators, but that is not always the case. Negotiation is all about understanding what you want and what the other person wants, and then coming up with a win-win scenario.
Inquiry 2 Inquiry: • The second stage of the negotiation process is the stage of inquiry. • During the inquiry stage, both parties exchange information and discuss their concerns. • The main objective of this stage is to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses, needs, wants, desires and issues.
Real Life Example Stage 1: Meeting Stage 5: Acceptance Stage 4: Closure Stage 3: Bargaining Stage 2: Inquiry Stage 1: Meeting To negotiate well with the client, the first thing that Peter should do is to prepare well for the meeting. Peter could go through the Project Plans of similar projects that Globus had handled in the past, talk to and seek guidance from his superiors and put all the data and information that he gets related to the project at one place.
