Successful Negotiations ! If there’s going to be any agreement, it’s necessary for one of us to make a concession. ! The only way to reach a compromise is to make a concession. ! The negotiation was finally successful when the other party backed down and compromised on a key issue. From these examples, we notice a couple things: First, we usually say to make a concession and to reach a compromise. A compromise is a kind of agreement, and a concession is something we do to reach it. Note, however, that in the last example compromise is used as a verb. In this case, to compromise basically means to make a concession. (For this reason, sometimes we also say to make a compromise with a similar meaning as to make a concession.) Now, it’s your turn to practice. First, we’ll review some of the verb collocations we just learned. In a moment, you’ll hear a series of sentences with a verb blanked out or replaced with a beep. Repeat the whole sentence, supplying the missing verb in the correct form. For example, if you hear: The only way forward is if one of us a concession. You will say, The only way forward is if one of us makes a concession. Let’s give it a try. Cue 1: By trading concessions, we will eventually a compromise. Learner 1: Cue 2: I think we can our strong brand name as a bargaining chip. Learner2: Cue 3: In last week’s negotiation, I a concession on price.

Answer 4: I think that an overemphasis on price is keeping us from reaching an agreement. ! 2009 All rights reserved: www.businessenglishpod.com 12 businessenglishpod Next we’ll use the same method to review key vocabulary.

Learner 2: Cue 3: We always have to keep in mind our long-term of building a good relationship. Learner 3: Cue 4: There’s a variety of deal that we can use to make buying our company more attractive. Learner 4: Answer 1: In our discussions, there seems to be an overemphasis on price. Answer 2: It’s too early in the negotiation to throw away bargaining chips.

It can be anything from a formal business negotiation to an informal personal discussion. Analyze it in the terms that we have learned in this episode: Was there an overemphasis on price? What did you give away as bargaining chips? What was your BATNA and your bottom line? How did you reach a compromise? ! 2009 All rights reserved: www.businessenglishpod.com 14 businessenglishpod Answers Listening Questions 1) Brian says that a top mistake people make is to overemphasize price. More generally, he says they focus too much on tactical questions without first developing a coherent strategy. 2) Your best alternative to a negotiated agreement (BATNA) is what you will do if you don’t reach an agreement during the negotiation. Your BATNA is what is already available, so your bottom line should be better than your BATNA. 3) Brian says that win-win has become a bit of a cliché. However, the basic meaning of the word is that, under normal circumstances, both parties must benefit in order to come to a deal. In this sense, all successful negotiations are “win-win.” Language Review A. Useful Vocabulary 1. If you ask me, they are overemphasizing rapid delivery to the detriment of quality. 2.
