Win-Win Negotiation Strategies

Episode 56 – Win-Win Negotiation Strategies

with Christine McKay

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how to negotiate in your business.

Christine McKay, a business negotiation strategist for 30 years, says “everything is negotiable except for mountains, rivers, oceans and your values.” She joins me in this episode to teach you how to hone your negotiation skills to make your business more profitable and joyful.

A lot of us feel afraid of negotiation. Maybe we’re afraid to get judged. Maybe we feel like we can’t trust our counterparts, so we go in guarded. Being afraid of negotiating is just a reality of being human, but not negotiating is costing you business and costing you in your relationships.

You can get better at negotiating. And when you do, you can step into the highest good for yourself, your business, and your clients.
