Tips for Negotiations

Happy Friday, dear readers! I hope you had a good week and that you are looking forward to a restful weekend. But before we get to the weekend, let’s talk about negotiation. I don’t know about you, but I sometimes find negotiating difficult. Because it is difficult, I like to arm myself with strategies and tools, and wanted to share some with you.

Did you just get promoted? If so, great job! Did you negotiate a raise? You should. You and I both know it, but it can be hard to ask for a raise. Luckily for us, Lifehacker as a good article on the right way to ask for a raise and get what you deserve. Yay for getting what we deserve!

I’m always interested in learning new negotiation techniques, so I thought I’d share this one: use the yes and negotiation technique to get better results.

Also, because really, who doesn’t like lists of three things? They are so easy to remember. I give you Lifehacker’s how to be a better negotiator with these three rules. Now go out there and create some winning outcomes in your negotiations!

And, because it is Friday, we should really end with something fun. So, go and check out these awesome Welcome to Night Vale glow shoes then check out the podcast, if you aren’t already a fan.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, dear readers. I’ll be off next week doing a bit of traveling, but then back in July for more news and notes. Allons-y!
