versa or attending mass on Saturday evening to watch Sunday morning cartoons together over breakfast. Reversal is a negotiation approach I sometimes use when it comes to making a go or no- go decision. For example, when a project manager has issues with the main construction contractor, so Contracting and Design & Construction Offices would like to terminate the contract. I sometimes vote no-go, it is not just because I don’t want to terminate the contract, it just because I want budget analysts, contracting officials, and project managers to discuss more about it before making the final decision as the termination will delay the period of performance, increase the cost of the project, and create a negative impact on the agency’s plan. In my personal life, I use reversal approach when I enter into major contracts. For example, when receiving offers for home remodeling or renovation, I would back out to do more research about contractors to select a contractor providing the best services at a reasonable price.
PROC 5840 Negotiations - 12 Angry Men Analysis 12 Probing and Testing . At work, I use probing and testing negotiation approach to participate in truthful discussions of the issues that result in collaboration with my supervisors, coworkers, and other offices to meet mutually beneficial outcomes. On the contrary, I’m also being probed and tested by them as we all don’t want to jump into conclusion without discussions and find the best solutions for the agency. Let’s revisit the example above; if the project manager wants to terminate a construction contract, I would ask if the contractor is a sole source or who else can complete remaining jobs. If the additional costs and time are needed, what would be proper justifications to submit to the top management for approval? In our bi- weekly meetings, I often ask sincere questions and allow my coworkers also to ask questions. I use open-ended questions such as why, why not, what if, what else, how, how about, who, and who else to lead to further discussions and create solutions. Probing questions help me get to the bottom of issues. Right probing questions help the other parties to talk about their feelings and create critical thinking. Outside work and school, as a parent, I always make my kids curious and ask questions, and encourage them to find out solutions by themselves or I ask them some probing questions, so we can discuss and learn new things together. After school, I often ask them questions such as do you have homework, is there anything I can help you with, what subject do they feel they are doing best or struggling the most, what is the one thing from your teacher you remember most, or what is one way that my kids helped someone out, or showed kindness or respect for someone else in their school today. These questions help me to keep my kids and myself in check.
