Skills Required for Negotiating

The following skills are required for effective negotiating:

  • Be prepared. Before conducting negotiations, sit down and work out what you want, what you are willing to give in return and what you need. Set your limits and goals.
  • Maintain an emotional distance. Do not allow your feelings to interfere with the end result. For example; do not end negotiations because you feel insulted.
  • Excellent communication. Your body language must be congruent with your verbal communication. Good listening skills are essential. It is important to avoid misunderstandings
