00:11

00:14

00:19
Derek Halpern you’re watching social
00:20
triggers the place where you can learn
00:22
to leverage proven psychological
00:23
principles to get more of what you want
00:29
here’s the first tip intimidate the heck
00:33
out of everyone let me just walk into a
00:35
store scream at the top of your lungs
00:38
and demand a better price just kidding
00:42
alright let’s get serious for a second
00:44
here’s the first tip I actually stumbled
00:46
on this while reading to sell us human
00:48
by Dan pink before you sit down to
00:50
negotiate with someone you should take
00:52
the perspective of the person you’re
00:54
negotiating with I’ll explain Columbia
00:56
Business School professor and
00:57
negotiation expert Adam Galinsky
00:59
conducted an experiment where he
01:01
revealed interesting insights behind
01:04
what helps people close a deal here’s
01:06
what went down they got together 154
01:09
undergraduate students and broke them
01:11
into three groups each group was given
01:14
different directions on how to approach
01:16
the sale of a gas station the first
01:19
group the control group was told to just
01:21
negotiate the sale the second group the
01:24
empathy group was told to imagine how
01:27
the other person was feeling and the
01:29
third group the perspective-taking group
01:32
was told to imagine what the other
01:34
person was thinking what happened the
01:37
control group in the empathy group
01:39
struck a deal 39 percent and 54 percent
01:41
of the time respectively but the
01:43
perspective-taking group they struck a
01:46
deal 76 percent of the time oh that
01:50
means when you want to negotiate the
01:51
close of a deal take the perspective of
01:54
the person you’re talking to try to
01:56
think where he’s coming from
01:57
what is going on inside of his head why
02:00
is he looking to make a deal in the
02:02
first place
02:03
can you align his incentives with your
02:07
own tip number two always ask for more
02:10
than you really want let’s say you’re
02:11
negotiating a job offer and you
02:13
really won a $5,000 increase in your
02:16
salary what should you do
02:18
don’t answer $5,000 as for $10,000 and a
02:22
week’s vacation why asking for more than
02:26
you really want gives you the
02:27
opportunity to make sacrifices while
02:30
you’re negotiating after hearing your
02:33
offer the hiring manager is probably
02:34
gonna say you’re asking for too much but
02:36
that’s okay you’ve got $5,000 and a
02:39
week’s vacation worth of wiggle room you
02:41
can sacrifice that extra money in
02:44
vacation time meet the hiring manager in
02:46
the middle and agree on that $5,000
02:50
salary increase which is what you really
02:51
wanted anyway so if you’re negotiating
02:54
your salary a client contract or
02:56
anything really ask for more than you’re
02:58
willing to take get it and the last tip
03:01
when you have to decline an offer never
03:04
take responsibility for the know here’s
03:07
the deal when you take responsibility
03:08
for the know you’re positioning yourself
03:11
as default and the other person can get
03:14
defensive and that’s no good
03:15
however when you pass the blame to
03:17
someone else you take on a different
03:19
role instead of being the enemy you’re
03:22
actually working with the person you’re
03:24
talking to to find a common resolution
03:26
be the good guy let me give you an
03:29
example back when I was 18 I worked for
03:31
this BS sign company and my gig was to
03:33
subcontract out sign installations for
03:36
as cheap as possible every time I would
03:39
call a sign in store they’d almost
03:40
always quote a price that was way too
03:42
high so I would tell him put him on hold
03:44
walk to my boss’s office present the
03:47
price she’d say no I would go back pick
03:50
up the phone and say hey man I’m gonna
03:52
level with you I can’t give you as much
03:54
as you’re asking and to be honest um
03:56
it’s not my fault my boss is well I
03:57
really don’t care what we pay you I make
04:00
eight thousand our I just need to find
04:02
someone who can do it for this price if
04:04
you can work with me we can make a deal
04:07
if not I’m sorry as you can see I wasn’t
04:10
the enemy I blame the boss for the no
04:13
and positioned myself as someone who’s
04:15
just trying to make this deal work we
04:17
were on the same side so there you go
04:19
those were three tips that you can use
04:21
to become a master negotiator again take
04:24
the perspective of the person you’re
04:25
talking to
04:27
always ask for more than you really want
04:28
and never take blame for the no if you
