The Importance of Negotiation in Business

Posted March 10th, 2017

One of the biggest obstacles in the way of someone becoming successful at negotiating is the mental barrier created about the importance of the actual discussion. Essentially, negotiation is a conversation between two people, or groups of people, looking for a solution that suits both parties. Once you can calm the nerves and realise this, you are on to a winner.

Becoming a good negotiator could mean the difference between a successful career in business and a failed one. So why do you need negotiation in business?

Initial Start at a Company – Before you’ve even started a job at a company you are negotiating with them to gain a place, and then to secure a salary to your liking. It is important to strike a good balancing act from both sides, leaving the company in a good place financially, whilst keeping the new staff member motivated.

Building Supplier and Customer Relationships – Every deal with a supplier, or a customer, is a negotiation in itself. If an employee can learn how to negotiate the best prices with vendors or customers, without being rude and damaging relationships, your company can build longstanding ties that are beneficial to everyone.

Conflict Resolution – As a career moves into management, there are many other problems to consider. This includes disputes within internal departments. The best case scenario in this situation, is for a good manager to negotiate a truce between two parties that leaves both happy to continue working in a productive manner for the company.
