1. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions
Questions you pose and the way in which they’re asked have an enormous effect on the outcome of negotiations. Ideally, questions should align with your goals for negotiations and help advance towards successful outcomes; yet many negotiators hesitate to answer challenging or potentially damaging queries posed to their position; many treat negotiations like an exclusive race for resources with each contestant fighting over an allotment of resources; this causes fear that their position could be attacked if exposed for examination.
Care should also be taken when asking leading or loaded questions, which are statements disguised as questions that convey biases or points of views to another party. Such questions could potentially make them defensive and lead them to close down.
Skilled negotiators will quickly assess whether their counterpart is open to negotiation and use their skills to identify new sources of value that they can share with them. A great way of doing this is asking open-ended questions such as, “how did you come up with those numbers?” or “what else is important to you?”.
