- About this item.
Diamond reveals how to turn the tables on hard bargainers out to steamroll you, by naming their bad behavior and using their own standards to get them to keep their commitments. GETTING MORE provides essential questions that individuals can ask to assess how public officials are doing—whether on the school board, on the town council, or in national and international politics.

He has taught and advised many Fortune companies and has consulted with governments and public and private entities in dozens of countries, including Kuwait, Jordan, China, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, Kazakhstan, Korea, Nicaragua, and Mexico, as well as the United Nations and the World Bank.

How would you feel about increasing your annual disposable income by, say, 10 percent? Understanding the picture in the head of the other party is the single most important thing you can do in trying to persuade another person.
If you try and understand the pictures in their heads, you have a starting point for changing their minds. The way forward now is to develop some options for solving those issues and then prioritize everything. This is what steps 11 - 15 are all about.
You might best do this alone or with colleagues — whatever works best for you. The whole objective here is to generate lots of ideas — smart, contradictory, silly or trivial. Even a half-baked idea can act as a trigger for someone else to come up with a game changing concept. Or put another way, sometimes bad ideas prime the pump for better ideas to come forward.
Steps 12 - 14 then involve helping improve your decision-making processes. You figure out whether you can reduce your risks by making what you want to do incremental step 12 , by involving third parties step 13 or by framing your idea in such a way it will become more appealing to someone influential and persuasive. Before moving on from this batch of steps, you pause again to do something of a reality check. In step 15, you ask whether any better alternatives exist.
Or whether or not you can improve the deal by involving a powerful third party who will change the balance of power if they join you or at the very least support you.

That way, you get as many issues out of the way as you can. Also, never try to commit to any one thing until you see the entire package of points to be negotiated.

Use all the time you have. They make commitments differently. First, the Chinese company will get the basic structure of the deal done in a contract — supply, delivery length, and so on. Then, they look at the market and propose pricing based on market conditions. Prices in contracts are viewed by them as being advisory rather than definite. At one time, a U. This debt was almost two years old. The U. Finally, the Chinese company agreed to a meeting. It has dishonored us in front of our colleagues. It has dishonored us in front of our friends.

You can also get creative in how you structure a real estate transaction. If so, you have to get out of that mind-set. Think about meeting your goals, not about winning over someone else. The more of a personal connection you make with everyone involved, the more likely you are to meet your goals. Try to meet the other party. Make small talk. Find out if they have intangible needs. Introduce your children to their children. This is also important because if anything goes wrong in the sale, the relationship is a cushion to prevent the deal from tanking.
How do you do that? In step 16, you pick the best options — whatever you feel is the most likely option the other party will agree to or which appears to be the least risky or which would be supported by the most people and so on. Step 17 is all about deciding the best way to present your proposal. This will be very audience specific.
Some people will want you to present a detailed dossier of information to support your proposal whereas others will prefer a succinct e-mail instead. It stands to reason if you format your idea in a way which the other party is most familiar with, you increase their opinion of the merits of your idea as well.

Every time people interact, there is a negotiation going on: verbally or nonverbally, consciously or unconsciously.
You can only do it well or badly. But it does mean that those who are more conscious of the interactions around them get more of what they want in life. The world is full of negotiation books telling you how to get to yes, get past no, win, gain an advantage, close the deal, get leverage, influence or persuade others, be nice, be tough and so forth.
