Negotiation for having a raise:
The plan for having a promotion in the work field is a rough task. The process of me presenting this to top management would be able to know what the skills are needed for the next position. Provide proof to head management that one is ready for the next position. One should be able to predict to questions that will be asked. Lastly, one should able to present in a professional manner to head, to convince them why the position really matters,
According to page 66, our text book refers to the skill of not to say yes to the first offer. In other words, if one takes yes for an answer for the first time, it shows to them that the negotiations skills are not strong, and one is actually not ready for a promotion. Furthermore, our text book refers to page 161 of perceptions. In the book it states “Perceptions also influences all of our communications choices-the messages we send the channels through which we send them” (Page 161).
