The alternative is to make a reasonable counter-offer, with a space between the two positions, to allow for further compromises. The key word is “sensitive.” As much as a weak offer can end a negotiation, as much a very high offer could be. Placing the offer at a level that is useful for both parties is the art of a good negotiation of agreements.
