What we need and don’t ask !!

The brazen careerist Penelope Trunk has this interesting article here on how women should not ask for what they want directly when they negotiate. She is of the view that men are better at negotiating because they don’t directly ask for what they want directly but they know how the “game is played”.

Case in point she says…

“If  a guy approaches you for sex, you hang up on him. If he approaches you for lunch, you think he’s very sweet. And then later you have sex.”

Well that is very interesting line of thought. Well that got me thinking how good are my negotiating skills being of the gender supposedly having better negotiation skills !!

Well for starters one point is correct men don’t really ask for what they want, hell that is the root cause of all problems for men. The other is that don’t ask for what you really want at the negotiating table.

hmm…points to ponder on….

Other interesting links to catch up on.
