You March to the Beat of Your Own Drum

You thrive on good energy and see the act of negotiation mainly as a barrier, not an opportunity. Not one for conflict, you’d rather step away than stay to fight it out – and given the choice, you’d leave it at that indefinitely. A useful tactic in highly emotional situations or those not worthy of your time – be careful, as eventually all the loose ends may lead to chaos – threatening both your reputation and your hope of getting the positive (and conflict-free) results you ultimately desire.

Become a Better Negotiator

  • Show up for yourself – As stressed as they may make you, not all negotiations are hard. And if you take some time to better know and understand your negotiating partners – you may even find that some can be fun. But the first step is showing up. By holding yourself accountable to be present, you’ll not only make sure your goals get their fair shot but also that your reputation and relationships remain strong. Don’t be surprised when you discover that the value you gain in the long term almost always outweighs any stress or fears you may have about handling the negotiation now.
