The Art of Compromise
In many cases all you will be able to get by being persistent is a compromise. Compromises are good. They get you one step[ further that you were in the first place. If for some reason, such as self-respect, you can’t accept a compromise, then don’t. Give whatever you can offer. If you do this you may not get any type of settlement in your favor. Here are steps that will show you how to compromise so that you get the best of the bargain:
Tell The Person Exactly What You Want
Tell the person exactly what you want in terms he will understand: “I want more…”
You must get past the other’s person’s excuses and alibis. You must be persistent until you fell you have hit the other person’s bottom line. You may find that the other person is trying to manipulate you. Be persistent until that person has stopped all his manipulation.
If You Are Unsure
If you don’t know what they want, then don’t make a decision. You must think the situation over before you make a compromise. If you need more time, tell the other person that you need more time. Make sure that you can live with the compromise you have made before you make it.
