To encourage you to think about the many everyday opportunities you have to persuade and negotiate with others, and to improve these skills, you are being asked to go out and negotiate a series of five or more trades over the course of two weeks starting with a paperclip and ending with something substantially more valuable. On November 1st you will be asked to submit an analysis of the project accompanied by this negotiation log, which is a record of your five transactions.

|Item (Include Monetary Value) |Date of Trade |Name of Person You Traded With |Your Relationship with the person |
|0. Marker ($1) |October 4, 2012 |Mark Brown |Neighbor |
| | |
|Comments About the Trade: |I thought that I needed to get an item for the paperclip that was not as insignificant as the paperclip and|
| |that I could trade up more easily. When I saw Mark walk by my dorm room with a box of markers, I asked him |
|(Example) |if he would give me one for my paperclip. He laughed and agreed to the trade. I guess having a specific |
| |goal for my trade helped. |

    My first trade was easily the most difficult, mainly because my item was essentially worth nothing. Thus, I used the anchoring method and my honesty as leverage in this trade. Instead of attempting to lie or trick my friend into over-valuing the paperclip, I was very open with Evan and told him about the project and the intentions of my trade with him. Fortunately he responded well to my honesty and became very interested in aiding me with this proportion of the project. I also made sure to redeem the quality of the paperclip by comparing it to a flimsier silver paperclip to enhance its value. This helped set a “psychological” anchor and Evan began to make some offers that could be both of a “win-win” trade, increasing both of our pies within the integrative negotiation. With that in mind, he reasoned that he had plenty of neon highlighters and it was worth trading one for the golden paper clip.…

    Getting to Yes! Book Report

    Getting to YES, Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In is an excellent book that discusses the best methods of negotiation. The book is divided into three sections that include defining the problem, the method to solve it, and possible scenarios that may arise when using these methods. Each section is broken down into a series of chapters that is simple to navigate and outlines each of the ideas in a way that is easy for any reader to comprehend. There are also several real life explanations for each issue that make the concepts easier to apply and understand. These ideas are reflective of a method developed by the Harvard Negotiation Project called “principled negotiation”. This method combines the two ideas of soft and hard negotiation in a way that looks at the negotiation objectively and separates the negotiator from the issue. By looking at the negotiation and separating personally from it, the best outcomes for both parties are likely to occur. To further explain, below is an outline of the principled negotiation method divided in the same manner as the text with real life applications of these methods and how they can benefit my professional life personally.…

    As the seller I was able to get a deal that was within my BATNA and close to the class average. I went into this negotiation with a BATNA of 140 and was able to get a deal at 135. I believe that I was successful in this negotiation because I enter the meeting with a solid plan including my BATNA and reservation point. I also listened closely to the opposing side’s arguments and adjusted my approach and BANTA accordingly to receive the best results.
