To what issues will negotiation be limited? …etc 3. Clarification & Justification - explain, amplify, clarify, bolster, justify ur original demands - educate & inform each other on the issues, their importance, how each arrived @ their demands - provide the other party w/ any documentation that helps support ur position 4. Bargaining & Problem Solving - actual give & take in, try to hash out an agreement - concessions need to be made by both parties 5. Closure & Implementation (handshake) - formalizing agreement, develop procedures necessary for implementation & monitoring - major negotiations need to list out specifics in formal contract (e.g. buying real estate, job offer) CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN NEGOTIATION Gender Differences in Negotiating Style I.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
