Getting To Yes

This book deals with the interpersonal element of the sales process, and can be a great resource for anyone who struggles with closing a sale, whether that’s a sale to a potential customer, or an agreement within your own company, or even a negotiation for a better salary or position.

They outline a few of the fundamental principles that are involved in every negotiation, and establish how a clear understanding of these principles can keep you in the driver’s seat at all times, so that you have a better chance of negotiating terms that are favorable to you or the business or organization you represent.

In their view, all negotiations break down into a certain set of rules. Both sides obviously want their way, but one side is usually more willing to give in than the other. The key to winning is to identify where your “opponent” has weaknesses, what they’re realistically going to concede and what they would never consider.

By identifying these points, you can create a strategy that will allow you to connect with the other individual, and create a solution is win-win for everyone. This tactic has proven extremely successful in negotiations of all levels, not just in sales, and the tips provided in this book are invaluable for anyone who consistently deals with interpersonal negotiations or sales.
