Deep in our hearts, we want to be like “them“. We want to be like “that person” who keeps “winning” the deal. Someone who manages to get the job done in any negotiation, be it purchasing a new car at a gallery or bargaining used items at Mudah.my[1] site. It is a well-known fact that negotiation is the key to success. We even have to negotiate with our children on many occasions! That shows how important the¬†negotiation¬†skill in our life.

In reality – negotiation is not an easy feat. I bet that even a seasoned negotiator would not know whether they can achieve a desirable result before entering the battle-field. Leaders often disguise their fear when negotiating despite their stature and position. There is no doubt that a winning-negotiator can be an important asset for most organisations, especially in the era of economic turbulence. Only the best shall win and survive. We need to get everything at a bargain! Even millionaires do need the best deal, right?
