IamA Professional Negotiator AMA! You may have seen me in subs such as r/negotiation where I have been a mod for nine years. Ask my anything about negotiation situations or skills.
Edit: This was WAY more tiring than I expected. Thanks for all the questions/comments. I promise to come back to respond to everyone over the next week or so.
Edit 2: Turns out I am going to be very busy over the next week so won't get back to responding to the rest until mid-late next week.
Thank you all again.
My short bio: I have negotiated professionally for more than thirty years. Beyond that, I have made being a better negotiator a core effort of my professional life and have finally written a book where I want to share what I have learned over the years.
When I first entered the business world, I realized just how important negotiation was. How being a better negotiator had an enormously positive effect on my professional (and personal) success.
I did not intend to write a book. I started out by just making notes for myself to remind me of what I had learned but over the decades my, "Negotiation Cheat Sheet" got larger and more refined...to the point that I had really, quite by accident, written a book.
Realizing that, I edited it and refined it and have just recently published it.
But this IAmA is not about promoting
RampartSkilled Negotiation. You can read for free in installments on r/negotiation if you'd prefer. I wanted to do the IAmA to (hopefully) show you just how important being a good negotiator will improve your life.
