Contract Negotiator Strategies and Skills
If you want to hire a good contract negotiator, take the following advice to heart. Contracts that are signed quickly tend to be lousy. Most people do not enjoy negotiating and just want to get it over with, but please, don’t rush. Get professional help, the final product will be much better for it. Always start with a term sheet. Term sheets address big picture items. Do the math. How much do you stand to gain? You should have a concrete idea. Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone. We’ve all received emails that have come across terribly and left us wondering about the sender’s true intentions. If your communication seems to be failing, call the person!Don’t wait for a full-blown misunderstanding to brew. You’ll get a much better read on the situation, including when to back off and when to accelerate. Understand that the first contract you receive is just that – the first. The contract you end up with will be very different if negotiated successfully.
Effective negotiation is a method by which people settle differences. It is a process by which compromise or agreement is reached while avoiding argument and dispute. In any disagreement, individuals understandably aim to achieve the best possible outcome for their position (or perhaps an organisation they represent). Please enquire about our negotiation services.
Decision quality is the quality of a financial decision at the moment the decision is made, regardless of its outcome. Decision quality concepts permit the assurance of both effectiveness and efficiency in analyzing decision problems. Decision quality also describes the process that leads to a high-quality decision. Please enquire about our negotiation services.
