MIAMI, Dec 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After more than 25 years of corporate experience, and using techniques inspired by Harvard University's Program on Negotiations and the FBI's Hostage Negotiations Program, a group of experienced professional negotiators has come together to launch "Optimum Negotiators," a new company that is providing Negotiation services to the general public.
"There are many people who are afraid, uncomfortable or simply do not like to negotiate. These people leave a lot of their money on the table every single day across America. Large corporations spend many millions of dollars every year to train their people to negotiate professionally, while the general public usually has no training at all. It is not a level playing field by any standard. Our goal is to help these individuals balance the scale and to get more bang for their buck, by using the most modern negotiation techniques available on their behalf. And since our fees are generally based on a percentage of what we save for our clients, we are always aligned with the clients' interests," says Rogerio Bastos, Founding Partner and CEO of the company.
There are instances where having a third party negotiating on your behalf can be especially important, such as situations that are emotionally charged. "The allocation of a family estate, or a divorce settlement, especially if custody is being discussed, for example, if not discussed in the proper way, can create shockwaves that will reverberate through those families for decades," adds Mr. Bastos.
And if you already have negotiation experience, they are also able to help, by doing mock runs and simulations to test your approach. "One of our most valuable services is to help the individual see how a negotiation could play out according to their own scenario and to prepare fallbacks and alternates that can help them achieve their objectives when unexpected situations surface during the negotiation," says Mr. Bastos.
Optimum Negotiators also coaches individuals and helps them prepare for situations where having a third party present is not possible or appropriate, such as a job negotiation. "A few hours spent properly preparing for a salary negotiation can be the most valuable investment an individual can make in his or her lifetime, as it is highly likely to impact the path of that individual's compensation and overall benefits for many many years," adds Mr. Bastos.
