#4: An Abundance of Tools
There is no shortage of negotiation tools available. In this article, we share 50. Be aware, the more effective negotiators use fewer tools well, and not many tools badly. Better to have one sharp saw in your toolbag than a broken screwdriver, and sandpaper that has lost its rough edge.
