I’ve written on negotiation before [Click Here] and a few people reached out and asked for more detail. They said “These ideas are great, but how can I go about implementing this in my life?”
This led me to reflect and experiment with the idea of negotiation. Using myself as a human guinea pig, I extracted a 3 step process that can work in many negotiation situations. In this article, I’m going to share this simple framework which you can adopt and use to help you structure your negotiations.
Imagine this scenario:
It’s starting to become a hot summer and you decide to buy an airconditioner. You find an ad on craigslist that has a used one listed for $50. You think to yourself, “wow, $50! what a great deal!”. After meeting with the seller, you pay them $50 and go home, happy with your new airconditioner.
Why didn’t you negotiate?
