To prepare yourself for the big day and to ensure that you have the needed energy to be at your best both physically and mentally, be sure to eat well and get your essential 8 hours of sleep. If you wish to take some alcohol the night before the negotiation, be sure to not take too much.

Do your research to obtain the needed information about your customer’s business. Create a list of relevant questions from your obtained research.

Tip #2: Be Selective: Choose Your Negotiator Well

When negotiating, it is not a job that is limited to just yours. At times, you will need to have your team handle it. Hence, it is important that you know how to choose your team’s negotiator. One thing that you must keep in mind when choosing a negotiator is it does not depend on a professional’s competence at all times. It is also not enough to base your choice on this factor alone. It is true that the professional skills, conduct, knowledge and personal presentation of a negotiator are always under scrutiny when negotiating. A professional may excel well in those aspects, but it does not mean that it goes the same with the negotiating skills.

The first few skills are important. However, it is wrong to assume that showing competence on these skills already means they are already competent to lead any negotiations. It is also wrong to base your decision on whom to choose as the negotiator to these aspects only. When choosing a negotiator, it is important to consider who among from your staff is able to handle the task.

Do not send anyone who is not a match in handling this very important aspect of the business. Your goal is to get the deal. Reaching that end will only be possible by sending the best person for the job, the one who have the needed negotiation skills. For you to determine who that professional is, it is a must to assess your staff. Use your resources well.
