Closing Stage of the Negotiation Process

People fear the closing stage of the negotiation process. They say:
‘what if they say “no” and it all breaks down?’

The truth is, if you do it right, closing makes yes more likely and any no will be a step along the way to ironing out problems

The Closing Stage is the fourth step in the basic negotiation process.

LESSON NOTES
============
The closing stage of your negotiation is all about moving from ‘almost there’ to a firm agreement. The Road to Closing
– Summary
– Check issues covered
– Check concessions agreed
– Ask what more
– Trial close
– Make the offer
– Confirm and record the decision

… and one thing to AVOID AT ALL COST
Never buy back the deal
Once you have an agreement, DO NOT return to any aspect of the negotiation

All you can now talk about is next steps and pleasantries
After all, you have a deal, so there is nothing more to gain…and everything to lose.

RECOMMENDED EXERCISE
======================
1. Prepare to close your next negotiation by making notes in your Negotiation Notebook. Create a one-page summary of the Road to Closing, in your own words. Better still, make yourself a checklist that you’ll be able to tick-off as you go. (2 MC CPD Points)
