  • Avoiding Negative value – how to recognize and avoid negative value
  • Managing expectations – how to choose your area of negotiation
  • Preparing – how to find out what you don't know
  • Setting goals – how to set goal and limits
  • Developing power – how to think and plan ahead
  • Controlling timing – how to use "time-outs" to enhance negotiation
  • Closing a deal – how to use a simple approach
