What Effort And Cost For The Preparation Of A Conversation Or Negotiation Are Justified?

For the sake of clarity: No legal advice!

The effort to prepare a conversation or negotiation

 

If you expect something from a conversation, it pays off to prepare accordingly. With a good conversation, a lot can be achieved and investments are worthwhile. So far so good. Which effort exactly is worthwhile?

How important is the conversation?

 

Not every conversation requires extensive preparation. However, some preparation is good for every conversation. What effort is recommended is a matter of importance, effort, opportunities and risks. Investing requires thoughtful decisions. Why do more than necessary?

 

 

 

How about a good preparation for a conversation?

 

Conversations can have different goals; inform, inspire, clarify, … In a successful conversation, it is possible to mutually communicate the perspectives and options and to find a common solution. After a good conversation, the participants are happier than before.

Good communicators are ready to make their contribution to a successful conversation and create the conditions for it.

 

 

 

The effort for the preparation of conversations

 

Sometimes a short note is enough to prepare you and sometimes it takes a lot of effort to take a closer look at the risks and opportunities. Sometimes even considerable investments in time and financial resources pay off.

Not every person has professional support or the financial means to do so. But carelessness is often the reason why good preparation is omitted. In order to limit the damage later, often great effort is required. Again, the rule applies: investments want to be evaluated in the ratio of cost to result.

Which effort is worthwhile for the preparation of a conversation is to be answered individually. However, if you expect something from a conversation, it is worth preparing.
