Black Belt Negotiating

Black Belt Negotiating

We Americans tend to be rather poor negotiators compared to people in Mexico, China and the Middle East. We walk into stores and pay whatever is asked. In other countries they would never consider doing such a crazy thing! People from negotiating cultures never pay full price for anything. Learn the secrets of how to haggle efficiently and effectively to save yourself and your company tens of thousands of dollars.

Ask yourself if knowing the following would save your money:

  • How to tell buyers your price is firm in a way they understand.

  • Getting buyers to raise their price without saying a word.

  • Finding out what is really the “bottom line”.

  • How culture impacts the bargaining process.

  • Why “win-win” can cost you big bucks.

  • Practicing your negotiating skills without risk.

  • Breaking impasses.

  • Stopping “nibbling” on seemingly small items.

  • How every part of the company is impacted by negotiating.

  • Gaining leverage in bargaining.

  • Staying emotionally uninvolved in the transaction.
