Ask yourself these questions to see if you have the key attributes to being a successful negotiator:
o You see possibilities rather than problems.
o You are an excellent communicator.
o You keep an open mind.
o You have confidence in your own abilities and the negotiation process.
o You are willing to listen.
o You are optimistic.
o Your ego doesn’t get in the way of a win/win solution.
o You are creative and ready to consider ways of doing things differently.
o You are flexible.
o You have excellent self-control.
o You are always well-prepared.
o You are lifelong learners.
Which is your strongest attribute and which would you seek to improve? For me keeping an open mind is my strong suit and I do lack self control in the harsher environments.
