Five Negotiation Don’ts

Five things you should not say while negotiating:

  1. “Between”, don’t use a range in your offering
  2. “I think we are close”, it’s a sign of frustration and willingness to compromise
  3. “Why don’t you throw out a number?”, be the first bidder
  4. “I’m the final decision maker”, always leave some room for advice from your dog!
  5. “Fuck you”, I say use it if needed
