From decades of observational research into effective negotiation behaviours, Giving Feelings and Testing Understanding are key behaviours practiced by skilled negotiators. Further findings from the research cover power in negotiation, preparation and planning, strategies and tactics and other behavioural skills such as Persuasion and Counter Proposals.
