The negotiator should first understand the issues at hand. Once in negotiations, the negotiator presents their case. The negotiator should listen to the other side of the negotiation. When the process of finding solution is complete, the final part of the process is entered into. The contract is then accepted and signed by both parties. The final step is fulfilling the agreement.
