Negotiation Begins at Home

7 TIPS FOR A CONFLICT-FREE LOCKDOWN


COVID-19 has, suddenly, seismically shifted the way we live our lives.

For a mighty chunk of society, free movement and social interplay have vanished overnight. In the battle to smash the deadly virus, we find ourselves in enforced home confinement, cooped up together for weeks or months.

Siloed living isn’t a choice. We all know how critical it is to save countless lives and put a brake on infection rates. But, for cohabiting family or friends, lockdown throws up all kinds of testing challenges.

To weather the crisis, we all need to stick together and work together. But, with all these new pressures, how do families and households stay co-operative and conflict-free? How do you and your cohabitants find a way to get what you want without raising hackles and kicking off a civil war? Applying a few negotiation skills may well be the answer.

Here are seven easy ways to use negotiation technique to make lockdown life more tolerable for everyone.

Tips and Considerations for Negotiating Virtually: Part Two

Negotiating over a webcam is not the same as face to face. Our overall advice is to slow the pace down, be deliberate with the words and information you provide and be concise. The main game here is to convey the relevant information to get the point across. If the software you’re using has screen sharing capabilities, take advantage of this and use this to demonstrate the relevant information!
