27. Identify Their Interests Infer from offer Ask why? And why not? “Is there some reason that moving expenses aren’t included in the offer?” Understand the weight and flexibility attached to their issues “I see that you have included a performance review after 1 year. I’d prefer to be evaluated sooner than that. Is there flexibility on this issue?” Developing rapport: Confirms their smart choice of hiring you Show them appreciation They need to know you are multiply motivated Lowers defenses; you are going to need to enlist their help Frame it as a professional investmentDeveloping rapport: Confirms their smart choice of hiring you Show them appreciation They need to know you are multiply motivated Lowers defenses; you are going to need to enlist their help Frame it as a professional investment

29. Creating Value: Summary Avoid unnecessary compromise! Look for tradeoff issues Add issues Look for ways to address interests underlying the issues Firm on value, flexible on how you get it Negotiate packages, not single issues Add here a slide to illustrate expanding the pieAdd here a slide to illustrate expanding the pie

30. Claiming Value Anchor on your numbers Provide justification “I think a reasonable salary would be $90,000--because that’s what similarly qualified graduates of my MBA program were offered by other companies this year.” “According to estimates I’ve obtained, I need at least $5000 in moving expenses in order to be able to move here.” Practice : “You’ll have to do better.”

31. Claiming Value Don’t give a range Propose multiple packages Never make unilateral concessions “I would be willing to accept an earlier start date in exchange for a larger signing bonus, because it sounds like you have more flexibility on bonus than start date.” Use silence

32. Making the First Move Best done after you have the offer Targets: high but defensible Suggest packages you’d be happy with Justify numbers with objective benchmarks

33. Leverage your BATNA Don’t misrepresent Present alternatives as evidence of your value, not a threat. “I’m delighted with your offer and the prospect of working with you. But I do want to be straightforward with you. I think you should know that another firm has made me an offer that includes significantly more salary. Is there room for flexibility in your offer?” Use alternative offers to signal concessions

34. Breakthrough Bargaining Extending the time horizon Contingency contracts Get it in writing Walk away

35. Dangers and Deal Breakers Misrepresentation Emotional reactions Appeals to “Fairness” Know when to stop Be aware of office politics Don’t do anything to get the job that you would not do once you have it

36. Dilemma #1 They’re asking for an answer by Tuesday, but you won’t know whether you have a favored alternative offer until Friday.

37. Dilemma #2 You’re dealing with a Human Resources officer who tells you, “You received our standard offer. We don’t negotiate.”

38. Dilemma #3 You’re “stuck” on salary, and they don’t want to talk about other issues until salary is resolved.

39. Dilemma #4 The person with whom you are negotiating doesn’t have the authority to give you what you are asking for.

40. Negotiation from the Employer’s Perspective Barbara Healy & Maria Stolfi People’s Bank Friday, April 29 4:00 pm Room A-74, SOM

41. Go forth with confidence!

42. If sequencing is a problem… “The value of any one issue isn’t as important to me as the value of the overall package.” “That seems to be one issue on which we’re getting stuck. Can we look at some combinations that might work for both of us?” “What if we trade X for Y? Would that be an acceptable arrangement for you?” “I’m happy to agree on this level for now, but I’d like to be able to revisit it later to see if it still works for both of us in light of the overall package.”
