the Interest-Based Problem-Solving method in addressing labor negotiations
There will always be conflict in our lives. When both sides
have a problem reaching a agreement negotiation is best. Negotiation is when there is a disagreement and the
two people need to deliberate with others in order to come to a agreement.
Whether it be the Interest-Based Problem Solving Method, or round
table all sides want to reach a agreement. I feel it depends on the situation as
to what method will work best, and environment as to how long it will take to
reach a agreement. Also depends on the negotiator.
Negotiations begin involving both
parties, if it is to be successful, both
parties to the negotiation must feel that the outcome was the best that they
could have achieved and that it is worth supporting (Lewicki and Litterer
1994). If a party feels cheated, they may not honor it, or they may try in some
other way to recoup their perceived lost value (Kennedy, n.d., p.3).
Each method has there ups and downs. The traditional method seeks to discover the motivations
behind each party’s position. The interest
based problem solving method the discussion enables an argument about the pros
and cons of a proposed solution. Each side of the solution is argued and there
are winners, and also losers, With this method there is a problem that needs
solving, and everyone has a right to their opinion. The solution often appears
simple when issues and values are not involved (Gray, p.5).
If you are sitting at a table ready to hammer things out it
is best to know who is sitting at the table. You also need a skilled
negotiator. All sides need to be in a positive mood in order to reach a
agreement. If you are negative then no matter the outcome your anger will cloud
your judgement, and anyone else at the table. When people know they will lose
out they will try harder to win. Make plenty of eye contact so the people you
are trying to negotiate with so they know you have nothing to hide. You need to
be patient. You also need to confront the issue at hand.
