Hangover = Negotiation Gold
Hangover = Negotiation Gold

    Negotiations are funny and I’ll always take any advice regarding the subject. Add the idea that it may be better to drink the night before a big negotiation, and I’m all ears.

    Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten recalls a situation where his lawyer suggested this theory:

    The unpleasant physical effects following the heavy use of alcohol actually work to your advantage during a tough negotiation. Seemingly uninterested you will be slouched in your chair, responding slowly and talking softly and looking generally unhappy with whatever the other party proposes.

    Your move, coffee.
