MCS-015 Communication Skills

QUESTIONS SOLVED IN ASSIGNMENT:
1. Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow:
Negotiations are complex because one is dealing with both facts and people. It is clear that negotiators must above all have a good understanding of the subject. They must also be aware of the general policy of the company or institution in relation to the issues and they must be familiar with the organizational structure and the decision-making process. However, awareness of these facts may not necessarily suffice to reach a successful outcome. Personal, human factors must be taken into account. The approach and strategy adopted in negotiating are influenced by attitude as well as by a cool, clear logical analysis of the facts and one’s interests. The personal needs of the actors in negotiating must therefore be considered. These can include a need for friendship, goodwill, credibility, recognition of status and authority, a desire to be appreciated by one’s own side and to be promoted and, finally, an occasional need to get home reasonably early on a Friday evening. It is a well-known fact that meetings scheduled on a Friday evening are shorter than those held at other times. Timing can pressure people into reaching a decision and personal factors can become part of the bargaining process. Researchers who have studied the negotiating process recommend separating the people from the problem. An analysis of negotiating language shows that, for example, indirect and impersonal forms are used. This necessity to be hard on the facts and soft on the people can result in the sometimes complex, almost ritualistic, style of negotiating language.
Language varies according to the negotiating style. In negotiating you can use either a cooperative style or a competitive one. In the co-operative style the basic principle is that both parties can gain something from the negotiation without harming the interests of the other. Or in other words that both parties will benefit more in the long run in friendship and co-operation even if they make some concessions. This type of negotiation is likely to take place in-house between colleagues and departments, or between companies when there is a longstanding relationship and common goals are being pursued. Unfortunately co-operative style negotiations without a trace of competition are rare. In most negotiating situations there is something to be gained or lost. There can be a danger in adopting a co-operative mode, as unscrupulous people may take advantage of cooperative people.
The opposite mode to co-operative negotiating is competitive negotiating. Negotiators see each other as opponents. Knowledge of the other party’s needs is used to develop strategies to exploit weaknesses rather than to seek a solution satisfactory to both sides. This type of negotiating may be appropriate in the case of one-off contracts where the aim is to get the best result possible in negotiations. Needless to say, the language in this type of discussion may become hostile and threatening even if it remains formal.
1a Why are negotiations not a simple matter? Discuss.
1b Is a strong awareness of the facts sufficient? Give reasons for your answer.
1c When are meeting relatively short? Why?
