Description of Stanford Business School Video: Negotiation is problem solving. The goal is not to get a deal; the goal is to get a good deal. Four steps to achieving a successful negotiation: Assess, Prepare, Ask, Package. Women increase the chance of a success when a proposal is framed in terms of benefits to your counterparts, team, or organization. Three questions to prepare women to enter a negotiation: Why are you asking? How are you asking? For whom are you asking?
