- Have negotiators first meet face-to-face to develop rapport and build trust.
- Before sending an email, read it aloud in the most negative tone.
- Schmooze before negotiating.
- Never send an email when you are angry (or drunk…).
- Tell the other person something about yourself that does not relate to business.
- Begin with humor.
- State your emotions explicitly.
- Check in with counterparts regularly to see how they’re feeling.
- Meet in person or pick up the phone occasionally for an emotional check-in, whenever possible.
- Ask questions to show interest and concern.
