Nailing The Negotiation (In Business And In Life) With William Ury

William Ury joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to share his expertise on the art and science of negotiation.







How To Negotiate

The show is kicked off with William bringing up a brilliant point in that most of our interactions with others are in some form a negotiation.

“Negotiating is something we do innately” – William Ury

William then shares how important it is to prepare for any negotiation. It’s the starting point to having leverage and you will not succeed without it.

“Is it useful to prepare for a negotiation? No question!” William Ury

The show is wrapped up with William explaining how to negotiate when things are less analytical and perceived value is involved in the transaction.

“You have to protect yourself, you can’t be taken advantage of but generally speaking it pays to give.” William Ury
