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.

Example Letter

Drivers Co.
3489 Greene Ave.
Olympia, WA 98502
August 17, 2001
Richard Brown, President
Document Makers
Salem, MA 34588

Dear Mr. Brown:

As someone who has worked with your company for over 3 years, we were very disappointed to see the documents you produced for our latest Drivers Co. publicity campaign.

As our written agreement stipulated, we expected full color leaflets with fancy explanatory texts, but instead, we found that black and white photos had been included in the prepared leaflets. I think you will agree that a communication problem exists.

We would like you to send out a photographer to provide us with the promised color coverage, or provide us with a refund.

Yours truly,

(signature here)

Thomas R. Smith,

Claim letters are used to make claims due to unsatisfactory work or products by companies that have contracted another party to complete work. For example, if a company outsources production of a part required for a final product and is unsatisfied with the contractor's work, that company will write a claim letter to demand superior products. As such, claim letters have a very formal and serious tone. Use the suggested phrases and model letter below to model claim letters for use in your own business activities.


Negotiation is a dialogue between two or more people or parties intended to reach an understanding, resolve points of difference, to gain advantage for an individual or collective, or to craft outcomes to satisfy various interests.

Negotiation occurs in business, non-profit organizations, government branches, legal proceedings, among nations and in personal situations such as marriage, divorce, parenting, and everyday life. The study of the subject is called negotiation theory. Professional negotiators are often specialized, such as union negotiators, leverage buyout negotiators, peace negotiators, hostage negotiators, or may work under other titles, such as diplomats, legislators or brokers.



Lose-Lose negotiations involve a situation in which everyone is going to lose.

Lawsuits are often lose-lose.

Let's say you leave your jacket at a restaurant coat-check and they lose it. Your negotiations for compensation with the restaurant's manager are lose-lose. Your not likely to get more money than the coat was worth. The restaurant also loses.

Lose-lose negotiations can quickly turn bitter and adversarial. Despite the fact that both parties will lose it's important to try to maintain a collaborative approach.



Consider the example

I gave you earlier at the car dealership. Imagine if Brian had realized the company chose to use a hard sell so they would win in the end. He could have easily said, “Forget it. I’m going somewhere else to purchase the car.” The company would have lost because they would have lost the sale and a future customer. Brian would have lost because he wasted a day negotiating and didn’t end up with the car. Check out this example of a lose-lose situation. Did either party benefit from the negotiation? Now, in this situation you could say the parties chose to use a lose-lose strategy, but in the real world people don’t choose it in the beginning. After the negotiations fail and they blame each other, you realize whether a lose-lose strategy was at play. If the other party believes that you don’t genuinely care about their needs and interests, you can have a lose-lose outcome or if both parties elect to use a win-lose strategy the chances of a lose-lose outcome increase.

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.
