Compromise is not a dirty word. True, it has a bad reputation, but it’s falsely earned. Most believe that compromise connotes getting, or giving, less than intended because that’s been our experience. We’re not good at knowing when, where and how to compromise. There are indeed times when you're compromising and you may not be achieving your full potential. And there are times when you must absolutely never compromise on particular things if you want to achieve your goal. So while compromise can mean shuffling priorities, it’s not a dirty word. Like negotiation, compromise is an art and it must be learned, practiced and honed to be effective. When you learn how to compromise effectively in order to get things done, you learn tactics and skills that prepare you for success.??
"Winners don't compromise, they win." I am sure someone’s said that some time, somewhere. But they’re wrong. Compromise is not weak. In fact, when you do it right, it’s a strength. Compromise means you’re coming from a place of confidence because you know you’re coming out of a situation with a mutual win. You know that you traded off a few less important things to get what you want or need most. At it’s best, compromise is not giving up what you want, it’s getting what you want.??
Compromise is a skill you need to master. The better you are at it, the more sales you'll close and the more happy customers you will have. That's a win win!???
