Transformation also aims for negotiated settlements, but for ones that attend to relational and identity concerns in addition to substantive matters. Second, interdependence involves change and learning through a stance of curiosity that recognizes that dialogue oklb mutual inquiry are necessary, even in negotiation, to understand and appreciate the other person. Another way to conceptualize gender in negotiation is not about individuals, nor the conditions under which gender becomes mobilized; but rather it focuses on gender as an organizing principle of social life.
Delegitimizing one of the parties during a negotiation reduces the likelihood of a mutually beneficial outcome for both bargainers, unless the target is able to resist. Similarly, Lisa Barron, in her studies of salary negotiation, identifies masculine and feminine orientations that are not necessarily defined by gender.
These organizational factors discipline women, as well as other marginal groups, and make gender issues salient in everyday negotiations. A double bind test for a woman leader is the question can she be a leader and a woman too? However, these behaviors when enacted by a woman are likely to be seen differently than they are when men employ them.

These strategies, such as casting the bargainong quo in an unfavorable light, can help parties realize that they must negotiate: Appreciative moves alter the tone or atmosphere so that a more collaborative exchange is possible.

These strategic moves don’t guarantee that all bargainers will walk away winners, but they help to get stalled breaktthrough moving–out of the dark of unspoken power plays and into the light of true dialogue.

Putnam, Through the Looking Glass: Deborah Kolb and Judith Williams, whose book The Shadow Negotiation was the starting point for this article, say there are three strategies businesspeople can use to guide these hidden interactions. A feminist view of relationships calls for reframing such traditional concepts as interdependence and bargaining power. Work by Michele Gelfand and her associates looks at what they call relational self-construal, that is, the degree to which negotiators access a relational self.
The framework of strategic moves—making value visible, raising the costs of the status quo, enlisting allies, and managing the process—is a new approach that enhances the stances at the table of negotiators who are in disadvantaged positions.
In another organization, women were routinely offered positions with lesser titles than their male counterparts. Negotiation and the Gender Divide Furthermore, a gender lens offers a broad definition of negotiation—one that holds possibilities for transformative outcomes unimagined before the bargaining began.
