1. Know What You Need
You need to take control over the conversation which you and your manager are going to have, for that you have to be one-step ahead of him or else your manager will likely to take over. When you are communicating, make sure to know what you want first then start negotiating the terms or you will end up in the hands of the experienced manager.
2. Know The Person Mindset Before Negotiating
Your manager is more like to offer things which do not add any value to your work, personal life or promotions nor the salary. Sometimes it seems like “Oh, this is far better than salary hike” then later you end up arguing with your manager, which is not wise for your career.
3. Have The Back-Up Plan
You want not only salary hike but also vacations and other things which are not listed. Sometimes things end up in ways where you just cannot go back and re-negotiate the terms because that is not good for your professional career. It is better to know each and everything and discuss every point after you reach the floor and end up in a conversation that you and colleague might have problems. So it is better than you negotiate with your manager
The Power of Negotiation is all about knowledge and how well prepared you are for the salary negotiation.
