Quoted – How to Negotiate Just About Anything – The Faster Times

Taxi Negotiation

Unlike Time Warner and Fox executives, or Democrats and Republicans, most folks eager to build personal wealth need skill in personal negotiations. Most days bring a boss who won’t approve a project, a store that won’t accept a returned product, or a child who refuses to clean up. And most situations can end with both sides happy (enough). Here’s how.

Take emotion out of the equation

However, says Scott Testa, a professor of business administration at Cabrini College, be prepared to walk away. “When you show emotion, it shows fear,” he explains. On that score, you can prosper by finding ways to disarm the adversary with cool.

What you don’t want to do, is to leave the table with a win-at-all-cost, says Testa. Be graceful. Go for the win-win.

And be ready to talk about just what “winning” means.

  2. Your blog is amazing, im sorry to say but for some reason i can’t view your post on explorer, thats why i had to use an alternate browser.

  3. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
