A verse that just occurred to me...Negotiation

December 21, 2010

I’m having a conversation with about how to negotiate (for anything...a new job, rental, buying something) and I burst into rhyme:

When you are willing and able To walk away from the table– You are in a very strong postion In any negotiation!

Negotiating is a complex dance Where you give each other enough of a chance To call it all off, or meet the other halfway… And to leave goodwill intact…whatever you say.

Good negotiation Requires skill…and imagination.
