Get in the Right Mindset
Negotiating your worth can feel like a tremendous amount of pressure. Knowing your value as soon as you walk in the door can help you set the stage for success.
This can be getting in the mind frame of:
- Understanding how you help your business make money
- You spend your time wisely and efficiently
- You have a proven track record of success
- You focus on education and staying up-to-date on advancements in your industry
- You innovate and pitch ideas
With this in mind, you can feel confident that you are bringing real value that deserves top compensation.
Know Your Negotiation Points
Having a game plan for negotiation can prevent trip-ups. It’s wise to have a strategy ready so you can have your talking points prepared.
You can formulate your strategy and points depending on your negotiation strategy. INC suggests that some personalities focus on numbers while others work better to connect and empathize.
Understanding your own strengths and limitations can leave you in a position of power for negotiating.
Keep it Mutual
While you’re negotiating, you already know that you are looking to get your maximum value.
However, keep in mind that negotiating is a two-way street. It’s important to cover your own needs, but you have to remember their needs as well.
Try to frame the discussion as a win/win situation. This is where both parties collaborate and come together to achieve a common goal.
This approach can make it much more likely for you to get what you want. Meanwhile, the other party can get what they want, too.
Always Work on Your Negotiation Skills
According to Harvard, great negotiators are proven to make more money. The reason why money is left on the table is because of a lack of creative problem-solving issues.
The workaround to creative problem solving is asking questions and sharing information. The more that you ask and share information, the more you can get to know the other party and their needs.
