It is not a sign of weakness if you pause occasionally, reflect and breathe.

In fact, giving the other party a chance to say their piece can prove potent in a tense or protracted negotiation as slowing the pace can help you reassess, regroup and return with an effective counter.

"Let the other person talk and allow one breath before you reply," says certified financial adviser Peter Horsfield, who describes his job as "one part financial adviser, one part marriage counsellor".

"This tactic will ensure the speaker feels heard and it will give you some time to reflect before replying."

Business is business and as soon as your client/supplier/distributor hears name-calling or foot-stomping, you've lost your deal-making power.
