In the heat of the moment, how do you stay collaborative? Especially when your money or pride is at stake?
The ‘how’ is to stay cool, but ‘how’ do you do that specifically?
1. Empty yourself of pride.
2. Smile, at least with your eyes… You have a better shot at staying collaborative if you stay positive.
3. Stay focused on figuring-out how to continue to collaborate with the other person. One fail-safe way is to ask a good question to keep a conversation going and shed light on what to say next.
