Chapter 2: Be A Mirror

You should engage the process of negotiation with a mindset of discovery.

The goal at the beginning of a negotiation is to observe and extract as much information as possible.

Be careful to note your assumptions and biases, and be open to all the possibilities that may be present. Mirroring is a technique to make the other person your sole focus.
