Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Negotiating, part of Management: Top Tips.
- An alternative to saying no that's a little bit softer…and probably more acceptable when you're dealing with,…for example, bosses or customers is to negotiate.…You can negotiate over when you do it…or how long you spend on it.…Maybe you can negotiate to only do part of it…or to get some resources, some help,…or even to be paid to do it.…So negotiating, I think, is like a partial no.…Imagine for example somebody was going to…have a meeting with you and you negotiated…to have it at your place rather than theirs.…
Suppose that saves you half an hour each way on travel.…That would save you an hour that week.…And if you can save an hour a week,…that saves you a whole week per year.…So perhaps by a combination of saying no and negotiating…you could save two hours a week, and that would save you…a fortnight per year.…Think of how much you could do if you had…two extra weeks suddenly given to you.…Two weeks of empty time.…So negotiating is definitely a possibility…that you should think about when there's a task…that you don't really want to spend a lot of time on.…
