Working Conversations Episode 79:

A Crash Course in Negotiation with Linda Swindling

Have you ever felt frustrated not getting what you want, despite how hard you tried to negotiate?

You’ve carefully prepared almost everything – when are you going to it up, how you’re going to phrase it, and what you’re hoping to get, but you still got an undesirable result.

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone!

Negotiation skills are critical in today’s work world.

Whether you are negotiating your work schedule, or where you sit in the office, or your salary, negotiation is a key skill you must have.

But here’s the thing – there’s a strategy and step-by-step instructions for you to negotiate just about anything — your position, your schedule, your vacation leave, your benefits, your workload, or a personal favor, you name it!

That’s what my guest on this episode, Linda Swindling, learned from her experiences in the courtroom and the boardroom during her 10 years practicing law. She had successes negotiating multimillion-dollar deals and resolved cases that couldn’t be settled. She’s that good!

In this episode, Linda gives us actionable advice and step-by-step instruction we can take to negotiate our way into a more desirable situation. She also talks about the common mistake people make in negotiating.

Moreover, Linda reminds listeners to stop thinking about what’s in the negotiation for themselves and instead start by thinking about how the other person can benefit.

Yes, you read that right.

This is a great listen for anyone, regardless of what role you have— and I know you’ll find Linda as inspiring as I do.
