Discover 9 Key Words That Will Make You an Expert Negotiator

If you want something, you have to ask for it.

Whether you’re dealing with coworkers and superiors in the office, or your significant other, most of our relationships require some form of negotiation.

That’s why we need to be good at it.

Here are nine notable terms that will make you an expert negotiator…

A guarantee means a concrete promise of delivery with favourable results. Because it’s so definite, using it gives people confidence in you. 

Prefacing a thought with “imagine” allows the other person to visualize your idea or personal experience.

The term “advantage” will perk up ears as it makes the other person think about what they can get out of the deal.

You need to come armed with information and facts to back up your argument. Using terms like “research” and “accurate” shows that you know exactly what you’re talking about.

Assure is a term used to sooth any worried minds and conveys an element of trust.

When stating your claim, it reassures the other party that you’re not the only one with your beliefs. That’s why it’s wise to use terms like “popular” or “it’s common.”

“Thank you.”
It’s one of the first terms you learned and it never goes unappreciated. Always make sure you thank the person for their time and for their agreement on your argument (if they in fact agree).

“What do you think?”
Fine, it’s more than one word, but by asking the person their thoughts on your pitch, it shows that you have his/her best interest in mind too. It also demonstrates that you’re not selfish and you want the conversation to end on a positive note. Plus, you benefit from hearing their thoughts.

The person’s name.
Finally, using the other person’s name in a conversation makes what you’re saying more sincere and personable.

There you have it. The rest is up to you…
