In most professional and personal situations, being a good negotiator gives you an instant advantage. Studies show that having good negotiation skills plays a vital role in your success, as well as your potential for advancement. Today's environment requires strong negotiation skills to close business, expand relationships, defend pricing, etc. Internally, being a good negotiator helps you to deal with conflict, reach agreements, find solutions to tough problems, and achieve important goals for yourself, your department, and the organization.

Securing agreements, be that between you and clients, suppliers, the management, or other outside connections is an everyday part of modern business culture. If you have negotiated well, the extra benefits fall to you, if you have not negotiated well, the extra benefits simply fall to the other party. Modern management skills rate the value of good negotiation skills as vital for managers to progress their careers as the skill will be called on frequently and its results are easily measured. Equally, if you are in sales or sales management, staff representative, or managing a team, the skill of negotiation cannot be underestimated.
