Negotiation Skills In A Week

Brilliant Negotiating In Seven Simple Steps

By Peter Fleming

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

You are just seven steps away from becoming an effective negotiator
Negotiation Skills In A Week is a simple and straightforward guide to what top negotiators do, giving you everything you really need to know in just seven short chapters. It identifies the no/no's and the win/lose situations you need to avoid while showing you how to be better prepared, plan clear and realistic objectives, maintain concentration and make logical proposals that create agreement in the other party.

Effective negotiation skills just got easier
There was a time, not that long ago, when negotiation was seen, in the main, as the province of industrial relations folk and car-sales advisers. But, no longer! Repeated financial crises have squeezed profit margins and, in some markets, discouraged buyers from making marginal purchases or continuing habitual expenditure. Managers have found themselves in the frontline of the expectation to achieve better value for money, and the starting point for this is to shop around and explore the offers made by new suppliers, and/or to negotiate better deals with existing suppliers.

Even if your job doesn't involve negotiation, then you might still be an active negotiator when replacing your car, moving house or even selling last season's wardrobe! The truth is that being a good negotiator has become a life skill, enabling those who are good at it not just to save money, but also to upgrade their computer, television or lawnmower with little or no increase in outgoings - and enhancing their reputation in the process.

Becoming an effective negotiator is certainly within the scope of the majority of people. At its simplest, it involves thinking out what you want, planning how you'd like to get it and developing your powers of persuasion to convince other people that you are simply being reasonable.

This book will help you to plan to become a better negotiator through being better prepared for meetings, planning clear and realistic objectives for a negotiation, maintaining concentration and making logical proposals that create agreement in the other party.

Beta: Quiet Girls Can Run the World

Rebecca Holman
Authors:
Rebecca Holman

What does success look like? 5AM conference calls and late nights in the office? Winning every argument in the office and always getting your own way? What does a successful woman look like? The shoulder-pad wearing Alpha? The dogmatist who rules with an iron fist? The reality is far more nuanced. Yet women are still pigeonholed as Alpha boss, or Beta secretary or assistant. When 47% of the workforce are reduced to two unhelpful stereotypes, how can you embrace your inner Beta and be a success on your own terms? It's an important question because the world is changing, fast. Successful companies need people who can lead with emotional intelligence, be flexible to new ideas and adapt their plans when required, leaving their ego at the door. The Beta woman's time is now. Beta celebrates the collaborators, the pragmatists, and the people who believe that being nice works and getting your own way isn't always the most important thing. It is a call-to-arms that explores the unsung workforce of Beta women who are being great bosses, great leaders and are still living their own lives: having relationships, making time for friends, having families. Beta inspires confidence and will help you in the workplace.Fully researched and rich with interviews, anecdotes and case studies, Beta is a smart and entertaining read that really explores the role of women in the workplace today.

Who are you writing to/for? What is your message? What response do you want those you are communicating with to make?- Monday: Listen carefully as colleagues explain the challenges they are facing. When you listen, you show you value your colleagues as individuals.- Tuesday: Write clearly. Think creatively about what you want to express, organize your thoughts and then draft and edit your email or report.- Wednesday: Organize better meetings. The key to a successful meeting lies in its preparation, especially why you are holding it, who needs to be present and what you will consider.- Thursday: Give successful presentations. Prepare well, knowing your audience and your key messages, backed up if necessary by useful visual aids.- Friday: Build strong working relationships.
