She’ll be right is not a negotiation tactic

‘She’ll be right mate’ is not a negotiation tactic

As women marched for acknowledgment of the cavernous void between the genders, in March 2021, I ponder – how far have we come since the Suffragettes took a stand? Why is it so hard to affect change?

Firstly, we have to acknowledge that something is broken – the government is broken. ‘She’ll be right’ might have been accepted in times past, but it isn’t an appropriate approach to the solutions we now face.

Is Australia a leader or a follower? What sort of country do we want to leave our children?

We can’t leave them with the same one we inherited.

If we want to affect change we need to seek it out, be open-minded, and listen.

Rather than doggedly continuing with the ‘she’ll be right’ attitude; listening to a diversified group of thinkers, strategists, and influencers is the way forward, and then put a plan into action.

Negotiator Strengths Self-Assessment

Step 1 of 10

It’s time to identify where your negotiator strengths lie, and to discover where you should focus your energy to improve your business negotiation capabilities.

This self-assessment is about the negotiator you are today, not the one you want to be, so as you work your way through each statement, sit in it, take your time to reflect on your typical response and give it a true assessment rating. It may be challenging but be honest.

Assessment Scale

Read through each question then think about how much the behaviour or situation sounds like you.

Consider if this sounds: least like you; a bit like you; or like you most of the time – in most situations around and at the deals table.

Take your time, but don’t over think it.

Below each question select how you score it on this scale:
