waqaee second part ka answer bat day akoi plz

OK guys and girls, for second question answer I think we have to add few more dialogues. Try to understand the scenario of the dialogue.

Let's suppose, Spouse A is wife and Spouse B is Husband. Now we have to convert this win - win negotiation into lose – lose strategy.

Remember couple fights? 

We can add few more lines at the end of dialogue. 

For example:

Spouse A: You really don't care about me.

Spouse B: Sorry I can't change your thinking.

I gave this example so you can understand how to convert win into lose strategy. I am not sure my answer is correct but that's all I could understand abt the 2nd question.

Please share your views and opinions. By

thank u so much for the clue :)

Q.2 clearly discuss kro frnds 

Lose-lose means that all parties end up being worse off and both sides perceive the outcome as negative. In this strategy, after the negotiations fail and both parties blame each other or get no benefit or may be not satisfy. In simple words, neither party gets what it wants....


Correct SuNsHiNe 

For 2nd Ques i m giving you some idea .. you can add the following lines at the end of this negotiation

Spouse A: you really don't care about me

Spouse B: I can't change your thinking

Win-lose strategy

Result in the party who initiates the conflict being satisfied and the other dissatisfied. This strategy focuses on the initiator’s problem to the exclusion of the other’s.  The initiator wins.  Many people who adopt this strategy use a confusing presentation or a dominating style of speech and body movement. This invites the other side to be just as difficult, or to withdraw from conflict.
