Not every negotiation will be a success and some shall reach what is known as a stalemate. Even though such a situation might manifest, it doesn’t mean that your talks should come to a total cessation.

The initial negotiation breakdown, and perhaps one or two succeeding failures, can be defined as the hurting stalemate phase. Here, no one wishes to back off and accept defeat, but no one can succeed at this point either. Regardless of the knowledge that they’ve come to a impasse, it’s often challenging to alter behaviour towards a dispute in the hopes that an agreement will be reached.

Leaders are afraid of losing face if they yield and give up on the desires that they have been seeking out. They lose track of the negotiation’s most rudimentary goal, which is to come to a settlement that is accepted by all. This is probably the ideal time for everyone to stop the negotiations temporarily, withdrawing and reconsidering their stance on the people spearheading the talks, their own plan, and their general attitude to the dispute. By determining what changes need to be made, negotiations can reconvene later in a more meaningful way.
