How to negotiate with strangers

“Negotiation” it a part of our life, we deal with various person at different scenario. People, time and situation might change but the negotiation will remain same. Some of them might be serious other may not be. Negotiation it is a vital form of our life, without negotiation it like a manual fixed gear that is played again and again. The talk might reach to an agreement or disagreement but through all the process the individual or an organization may aim to reach at positive outcome from the discussion.

Negotiation is like an art, and we know artist can distract, manipulate and influenced but during the period of negotiation we must remain to the topic and have to find a way to become an artist and to work around it.

In Australia, the History Wars raged on the front pages of the national press due to a group of powerful right-wing commentators and a conservative government generally intent on suppressing divergent views of nation, nationality, and national belonging. The History Wars have included discrediting Aboriginal testimony in relation to the Hind marsh Island Bridge; refusing to apologize for the “Stolen Generations” report; and attacking the ‘political correctness’ of the National Museum’s exhibition program. Recently, a National History Summit was convened to prepare a statement on what histories should be taught in secondary schools around the nation.

During a negotiation, it would be wise not to take anything personally. If you leave personalities out of it, you will be able to see opportunities more objectively.

These are some things that are to be considered during the interval of negotiation

  1. Make inquiries. Requesting the other individual’s needs it is crucial in setting the parameters of the transaction.
  2. Take on a similar mindset as a correspondent: Ask follow-up inquiries intended to crosscheck or accept past answers.
  3. Don’t hesitate to question reactions. It is essential to comprehend what you are being told.

Negotiation can be presented in different manner, negotiations are usually held when both the parties come to a point where both of them are mutually benefited. If one of the parties doesn’t get any profit from it then it might hamper the upcoming future relation with them so “negotiation” should be carried out if both of them agree on some terms that will benefit both of them. Here is my more discussion about the topic.

So basically what I’m saying is that negotiation is a part of our ordinary daily life, which has a great significant, and usually held when both or multiple parties are trying to take advantage from it in some manner. It can create lots of difference in the coming future.
