Friday Distraction – Ari Gold on Negotiation (NSFW)

November 19, 2010

Negotiation is part of every sales process. If you’re not familiar with Jeremy Piven’s character on “Entourage”, you ought to be.

Also, this is somewhat mild on the “Ari Scale”, but it does illustrate hard-charging negotiating skills.

    Ari could be the topic of a completely separate blog.

    Great, great stuff. Unfortunately you gotta have a guy who’s willing to say ‘F it, let’s get out of here’, and then another guy who’s willing to say ‘Wait…’

    In the real world, its usually two frightened people trying not to get themselves fired.

    But because of that, if you’re not so frightened in a negotiation, you can often accomplish quite a bit just by asking for reasonable things.

    True Monica – I wonder how many workplaces have such a person :-)
