Also know, what is an example of a threat? noun. Definition of a threat i una dichiarazione di inthiszione di danneggiare o punire, or something che presenta un pericolo o un danno imminente. If you tell someone “I’ll kill you”, that’s it example of a threat. The person who can blow up the building is there example of a threat.

Additionally, how do you overcome threats in SWOT analyses?

That’s how:

  2. Strengths-Threats. Use your strengths to minimize threats.
  3. Weaknesses-Opportunities. Correct weaknesses by taking advantage of opportunities.
  4. Weaknesses-Threats. Work to eliminate weaknesses to avoid threats.

How do you find opportunities and threats?

How to Identify Opportunities and Threats in Business Planning

  1. The emergence of new or stronger competitors.
  2. The emergence of unique technologies.
  3. Changes in the size or demographic composition of your market area.
  4. Changes in the economy that affect customers’ shopping habits.
  5. Changes in customer preferences that affect shopping habits.

Isn’t it difficult to tackle certain situations when one wrong step can change the entire consequences? Yes, some situations make us dumbfound, and paralyze our decision-making capabilities whether that has a positive or negative impact on our project’s life. So, don’t you think that it is better to have some tools and techniques to deal with such threats and opportunities?

How to deal with a threat

Irrespective of the project’s duration and intricacy, risks are always there and in the case of long-term complex projects, the level of risks increases manifolds. So, to minimize the negative impact on our projects, we should have a concrete plan with well-defined strategies for dealing with situations as they arise. A risk response plan contains the strategies to reduce the threats coming on the way of the project, as well as helps the team to enhance the opportunities to avail maximum benefits out of it.

This process requires organizing risks according to their priorities and then allocates resources, budget and planning as appropriate to manage both negative and positive risks.

Moving on, let’s discuss some of the possible strategies for dealing with negative risks.

How to Approach Threats?

Typically there are three strategies to deal with the threats which can have negative impacts on our project. These are Transfer, Avoidance, Mitigate, and another one – Accept which can be used as a strategy to deal both the threats and opportunities.

Sposta la threat

In the case of certain risks, where you know that it is not possible to manage when it actually occurs, it’s better to transfer those risks to a third party who can handle it better. The transfer does not eliminate the risk; you still own it, only the responsibilities will be transferred to a third party to manage that risk by paying the appropriate amount for the service.

For instance, you want to setup a data center with some high-end servers as per your project’s requirement. But because you don’t have the internal compethisze necessary to set up the data center, you’ve signed a fixed-price contract with a contractor to get the job done. Now it is the contractor’s responsibilities to setup the data center within the agreed cost and schedule.

In addition, you can purchase insurance by paying the required premium according to the cost of the data center to cover losses in the event of an accident.

Avoid the danger

How to deal with a threat

Another strategy is to avoid or eliminate threats and its impact on the project by changing the project plan, reduce or change the project scope or change the project schedule in such a way that the anticipated risk may not occur at its first place.

For instance,during the project, some highly skilled members of your team will not be available at certain times, so you can modify the project plan to avoid big releases during that time.

Accetta la threat

For certain threats, you cannot chalk out a strategy that may be because you do not have the required skills to deal with such threats or the solution to those threats demands much more than your budgeted cost. So, in that scenario, it’s best to accept the risk actively or passively. In the case of passive acceptance you need not do anything, just note down the threat.

Atthisuare la threat

This is a common risk response strategy where you need to plan the things in such a way that the impact or the probability of occurrence of the threats can be reduced to an acceptable limit when it actually occurs.

For instance,when you know that one of your project milestones falls during the holiday season when most of your team members will be on leave, plan to engage multiple resources to complete milestone jobs just before the holidays for a successful release .How to deal with a threat

How to take advantage of the opportunities?

Where it is necessary to reduce the impact of threats on the projects, it is also beneficial to leverage the opportunities coming on your way. There are four main types of risk response strategies to address risks that have a positive impact on the project objectives.

Increase the chances

This is a strategy to increase the probability of opportunities or the positive impacts to get the benefit.

For instance,Suppose completing a three-month milestone within 2 months could bring a new project to a client.

Then, you can add more resources to get the job done in a shorter period and show the work to the client to win another similar type of project.

Take advantage of the opportunities

In this strategy, you need to plan in such a way that the opportunity is realized when it presents itself, making sure that it does not remain unfulfilled.For instance, as we discussed above, you know that completing a major milestone can win a new project from the client. So, you have to use any of the crashing techniques to complete it faster to win the opportunity.

Share the opportunities

This strategy is to share the opportunity with another party who is more capable of capturing the opportunity for the benefit of the project. For instance, due to lack of resources, you cannot bid on a large construction project. Then you can work with another company that has the resources to bid together to win a high-value contract. And yes, you have to share the benefits with your partner as well when you win the contract.

Accept the possibilities

The strategy adopted is simply to wait for the opportunity and pursue it when it arises, but not to act actively. For instance, if prices of certain raw materials go down due to any market conditions, then it will have a positive impact on your project budget. So, you will accept the benefit when it happens.

You cannot completely avoid the threats in your project. Ma almeno puoi ridurre il loro impatto e i probabili eventi quando sei pronto con le giuste strategie di risposta al rischio per affrontarli. These strategies are not only capable you to deal with the threats but also gives an edge to realize the opportunities coming on the way, which is beneficial for you as well as your organisation.

How to deal with a threat

Coastline College seeks to foster a safe environment in which students and employees can participate in the educational process without compromising their health, safety or well-being. In order to ensure the safety and security of Coastline College, we strictly prohibit violence or threatening behavior. Beforehand, it is important to understand what defines threatening behavior.

Dangerous behavior takes many forms. Dangerous behavior is different from destructive behavior. Rather than simply distracting or interfering with activity, threatening behavior is an expressed or implied threat of harm directed at others or the person is so angry/irrational that it puts you in fear. Keep in mind: Disruptive behavior can also be a precursor to threatening behavior. Merriam-Webster (2019) defines threatening as “expressing or suggesting a threat of harm, danger, etc.”

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines threatening as “expressing or suggesting a threat of harm, danger, etc.”

This behavior can occur at work, at school, at home, over the phone, or in writings (letters, email, or social media). It can come from a peer, a stranger, a co-worker, in a school setting, a chance encounter with a criminal on the street, or an encounter with someone with a psychiatric disorder. Recognize red flags at the start of interactions and avoid such situations if possible.

Early detection

How to deal with a threat

ASIS International, la più grande organizzazione mondiale di membri per professionisti della gestione della sicurezza, afferma nella sua Protezione dei beni che "il mezzo più efficace per prevenire la violenza sul posto di lavoro i la diagnosi precoce di questa dinamica comportamentale, emotiva e psicologica" (POA Zarządzanie Safety, 2012, p. 363).Early diagnosis begins with reporting. Axiom See something, say something the truth is ringing. Sadly, a survey by researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln of 1,075 students at a Midwestern university found a report rate of threatening or concerning behaviors on campus at a mere 12.3% (Hodges, Low, Vinas-Racionereo, Hollister,& Scalora,2016,p. 129). Reporting suspicious or harassing behavior has prevented many acts of violence in school and in the workplace.

If a person is making threats in your presence, attempt to disengage with that person and remove yourself from the environment. Call security or law enforcement.

What to do when encountering threatening behavior:

After a threatening encounter, report it to your supervisor or friend in a quiet setting and re-evaluate what was said. Even an angry,“disruptive” person who does not make a threat can pose a threat later. If in doubt, report it. Generally speaking, violent behavior starts with disgruntlement and escalates in a continuum through intimidation, spoken and writthis threats leading to acts of violence (Protection of Assets,2012,Security management, p. 363). Coastline College uses Maxient software to report and manage behavioral problems for Nieuczność Akademicka, Disruptive Behavior, Concerning Behavior, and Sexual Misconduct.

What is a Maxient Event Report?

Maxient is an application form related to one of the following:

  • Violation of student behavior
  • Academic dishonesty
  • Behavior Assessment Group (BAT)
  • Referral – Inappropriate Sexual Behavior (Title IX)

Coastline also has a Behavior Assessment Group (BAT) that meets monthly (more frequently as needed) to review incidents, conduct threat assessments, and develop strategies to address disruptive behaviors, mitigate threats, and provide relevant resources to assist our community. Coastline employees can access Maxient using the icon on their computer’s Desktop.

Both students and staff can also find a web link on the Coastal Behavior Assessment Team website:http: // www. shoreline. Edu / Behavioral Assessment Team.

Steps to take when aggressive behavior occurs:

When violence appears imminent, each individual must make their own assessment of the situation, the environment in which it occurs and their physical and emotional capacities.

  • Do exactly as you are told and no more.
  • Avoid eye contact with the suspect.
  • Speak only when someone is talking to you.
  • Tell the suspect exactly what you are doing.
  • Don’t make sudden movements.
  • Please allow alarms to go off unless it is safe to do so.
  • Try to keep calm and control your emotions.

If all else fails, consider theRun, hide, fight philosophy. While you may not want to get involved, you may not have a choice. Remember, you don’t need to take control of the person, you just have to distract them long enough to leave the situation.

Moreover, we don’t want to alarm you, but rather inform you, as Coastline College has an extremely low crime rate. According to the most recent Annual Safety Report of the Coastline Community College 2018 covering the three-year period 2015-2017, no cases of aggravated assault have been reported.

Remember, no one should be subjected to threatening behavior. If you are, remain calm, disengage if possible, ask for assistance, and report the threat immediately.

When considering cybersecurity strategies for data protection, guarding against external threats is usually the first on the list. However, according to the 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report published by Ponemon Institute and IBM Security, cyber attacks taking over the headlines represent only half of the main causes of data breaches. thisrest are due to internal threats and system glitches.

It is often the most difficult to control and anticipate the human factor when it comes to data protection. While some companies invest in employee training in the hope that a well-educated workforce, aware of the financial and reputational consequences of data breaches, will be enough to increase vigilance and deteriorate security practices. However, the truth is, in many cases, organizations are only one employee distracted by a malicious security incident. There is also always the pothistial danger of malicious insiders, disgruntled employees that want to damage a company’s reputation or steal data on their way out of an organization.

But what are the most common internal incidents and practices that represent a threat to a company’s data security? Let’s have a look at the most prevalent five:

1. Social engineering

Although technically an external threat, social engineering only works if someone inside a company can be tricked into revealing information. This means that employees are being manipulated to enter passwords or other sensitive information. Social engineering can take the form of attackers impersonating friends or other unquestionable sources and requesting confidential information or unexpected offers and rewards from sought-after brands that conquer or link to malware.

While antimalware and antivirus software can help report this type of malicious email, social engineering is best addressed through training. Employees need to be trained on the different ways external attackers can deal with them and how they should respond when they receive suspicious requests. To prevent this from happening, an understanding of social engineering is essential. Training should also be tested to identify any weaknesses among employees.

2. Sharing of data outside the Company

Employees who share confidential information with the public or with third parties outside the company could cause disaster. This usually happens out of carelessness: a reply all button is hit instead of a simple reply, information is sent to the wrong email address, something is accidentally posted publically.

Training rarely helps with these types of accidents as they are human errors to which we are all exposed. Specialized software such as data loss prevention (DLP) tools can help organizations track sensitive data and ensure that their transfer, via email or other Internet services, is restricted or blocked altogether.

3. Shadow IT

The use of unauthorized third-party software, applications, or Internet services in the workplace is often difficult for IT departments to track down, hence the term Shadow IT. The reasons for the prevalence of shadow IT are quite simple: Employees are using applications that are known out of habit, because they improve their efficiency and lighten the workload or are more user-friendly than the alternatives authorized by the company.

This is problematic because companies are, most of the time, unware that this is happening, essentially creating a blind spot in cybersecurity strategies. An additional danger is the poor security of these third party services which can lead to data leaks or breaches, but also failure to comply with data protection legislation which also makes shadow IT a legal liability.

Shadow IT usually signals a company’s inability to provide employees with the right tools to do their jobs. Organizations should have an open dialogue with their employees to understand their technology needs and try to meet them. DLP tools can also help companies prevent employees from uploading confidential information about these unauthorized services and, by monitoring this, achieve a better understanding of shadow IT within their organization.

4. Use of unauthorized devices

Many data protection policies focus on transferring data outside the corporate network via the Internet and ignore another frequently used method: mobile devices. USB in particular has long been the bane of data protection strategies. Easy to lose or steal, yet comfortable to use, USBs have led to some disastrous data breaches such as the now infamous Heathrow airport security incident where a careless employee lost a USB with over 1,000 confidential files, including which highly sensitive security and personal information.

The simplest way to prevent this type of tampering is to block USB ports and peripherals at the same time. However, there is no denying USBs’ usefulness in the work place. For businesses that still want to use USBs, there are steps they can take to do so safely. The most important of these is the encryption of all files transferred to the flash drives along with the atquestible devices policy, which would only allow devices defined as unquestable to connect to the company computer.

5. Physical theft of corporate devices

In today’s increasingly mobile work environment, employees ofthis take their work computers and portable devices out of the office. Whether it’s working remotely, visiting customers, or attending industry events, work devices often leave the security of corporate networks and become more vulnerable to both physical theft and external tampering.

Encryption is always a good protection against physical theft. Whether it’s laptops, mobile phones or USBs, encryption removes the possibility that anyone who steals them can access the information on them.

Phishing attacks attempt to steal sensitive information through email, websites, text messages or other forms of electronic communication. They try to look like official communications from legitimate companies or individuals.

Cybercriminals often attempt to steal personal names, passwords, credit card details, bank account information, or other credentials. They use the stolen information for malicious purposes, such as hacking, identity theft, or theft of money directly from bank accounts and credit cards. This information can also be sold in clandestine cybercriminal markets.

Social engineering attacks aim to exploit a possible disruption in uthiste’s decision-making process. Do this and never give out sensitive or personal information through unknown emails or websites or over the phone. Remember, phishing emails are designed to appear legitimate.

Know the signs of a phishing scam

The best protection is awareness and education. Do not open attachments or links in unsolicited emails, even if the emails come from a recognized source. If the email is unexpected, do this when opening the attachment and verify the URL.

Companies should educate and train their employees to be wary of any communication that requires personal or financial information. They should also instruct employees to report the threat to the company’s security operations team immediately.

Here are some telltale signs of a phishing scam:

How to deal with a threat

Ofthis when people face a new and stressful situation—a job that’s a bit too challenging, a thorny relationship hurdle that will take a while to sort through, a change in lifestyle that feels like a step down from what they had—they feel overwhelmed at the thought that they may have to deal with this stress for an exthisded period of time.

Le persone che si preoccupano di this stress a lungo termine hanno motivo di essere preoccupate: lo stress cronico, il tipo di stress che i continuo e immutabile, può avere le peggiori conseguenze. People struggling with chronic stressors may wonder if things will get easier – they will adapt.

thisgood news is that there are things that can be done to mitigate the stress of virtually any situation, even if the situation itself is there to stay for a while. If you’re facing a new hurdle, a difficult life situation, or just wondering if it gets easier and how to speed up the process, the following are some stress-relieving strategies that can help you.

NoteIf you’re facing a life crisis or overwhelming stressor, these techniques can help significantly, but at some point you may need to seek professional help if the stress doesn’t become manageable.

Have thisRight Attitude

We can’t always control what we are facing, but we do have a choice in how we face it. We can choose the attitude we take, and whether we face each challenge as a threat or a challenge.

Research shows that viewing something as a challenge helps you to mobilize your resources and bring your “A game” to the situation more easily, while viewing the same situation as a threat can lead to a greater thisdency to feel stressed and shut down

If you read about avoidant coping, you can see some of the problems associated with shutting down or avoiding your stressor. thisfollowing steps can help you to move into a more empowered frame of mind if you need to.

Understand the role of posture

Your attitude can help you determine how stressful a situation is for you and how you cope with your options. In fact, attitude can affect the options you see and don’t see, which can also affect your stress levels and the outcome of your actions.

Test your thinking patterns

Your thought patterns may seem automatic, but you can choose where your focus is. Starting to make that choice helps you become aware of your habitual thought patterns. This exercise can help you to see these patterns more clearly and can help you to relieve stress in the process.

Practice a positive personal conversation

Positive self-talk means using more optimistic language in your head and focusing more on the possibilities. Implica più del semplice tentativo di guardare il lato positivo, anche se this ne fa parte. Impara le aree specifiche in cui puoi spostare la tua attenzione e, nel processo, modificare ciò che i possibile per te e quanto sia stressante o senza stress la tua vita.

Change what you can

Sometimes there are certain aspects of a situation that you can change, even if you cannot change the situation as a whole. For instance, you may, for financial reasons, be unable to quit a job you don’t enjoy, but you can connect with co-workers more, alter your attitude while you’re at work, and use your break time for stress management activities, all of which can alter how you feel when you are at this job. thisfollowing steps can help you to make changes where you can and relieve stress as you do.

Try solution-focused coping

Solution-oriented coping means taking action to change your life wherever possible. These changes can be large-scale or small but focused. Change itself can bring stress, so it’s important to choose the changes that will matter the most.

Find and remove tolerances

Tolerances are those annoying stressors in your lifestyle that you endure almost without realizing it, but that bring you constant low-grade stress. thisthing about tolerations is that they add up to bigger stress. Cutting out tolerations can bring stress relief so you can tolerate more of the things you can’t change.

Create a new life plan

Knowing where you want to go, having a plan for the future, can help minimize stress in the present. Planning changes according to your values and priorities can be helpful and inspiring, even if you can’t bring those plans to fruition for a little while longer.

Building resilience

If you can’t do any more to change your situation, you can still reduce the stress you feel as you manage your daily life. Certain activities can promote resilience and help you feel less stressed overall and less responsive to the stressors you face when they raise their ugly heads. thisfollowing are a few resilience-building activities to add to your life—the more they become an automatic habit, the less your stressors will bother you!

Taking care of health: self-care

When we are tired, hungry and run down, everything seems more stressful and we have fewer resources to cope at our disposal. We usually respond to stress, we don’t react to it. We let things curl up like a snowball. Focus on taking care of your body and you will have a greater ability to manage the frustration and stress in your life in general.


Exercise is one of those wonderful stress relievers that can build resilience by helping you to blow off steam. Better yet, regular exercise can help you become less responsive to stress. A causa di ciò e degli ovvi benefici per la salute dell’esercizio, this i un potente antistress che dovrebbe essere inserito nel tuo programma quando possibile.


Meditation can help you to remain centered in the face of stress and can help you to regain a sense of peace when you are feeling off-balance. There aremany meditation techniques that work well, so try a few and stick with a favorite technique or two that really feel right. Over time, you should find yourself reacting to stress with less inthissity and more able to remain calm and peaceful.

Positive attitude

Mantenere un atteggiamento positivo i una delle cose che puoi fare per rendere tutto più facile nella tua vita. Un atteggiamento positivo ti aiuta anche ad andare d’accordo con gli altri (il che può portare a un maggiore supporto sociale e a meno conflitti) e può aiutarti a rimanere a tuo agio, anche quando le cose intorno a te non sono così buone.

All in all, it would be great if we I could simply avoid or eliminate the stressors in our lives. Unfortunately, that’s only possible to an exthist, and there will be times in life when we are all faced with unpredictable or unavoidable stressors, when we need to rely on resilience. You may not be able to change everything in your life, but these tips can help you adapt more easily to the stressful situations you may be facing.

Four steps you can take to minimize the harmful effects of verbal abuse.

Posted September 5, 2020 | Reviewed by Lybi Ma

How to deal with a threat

L’abuso verbale i un modo per ferire gli altri, usando le parole o il silenzio come arma. Unlike physical abuse, verbal abuse doesn’t give rise to broken limbs, black eyes, or bruises. Yet it can be just as emotionally disturbing and ofthis leads to anxiety, fear, despair, or depression.

thisonly surefire way to end verbal abuse is to permanently remove yourself from your abuser. But this requires being able to recognize the abuse, and even once the problem has been identified, external factors such as financial problems, small children, or a common workplace can make it difficult to walk away from the situation permanently. Se non puoi rimuovere te stesso in modo permanente dal tuo molestatore per qualsiasi motivo, la tua unica risorsa i ridurre al minimo gli effetti dannosi dell’abuso il meglio che puoi. Here are four steps you can take to stay sane for now:

Learn to recognize the abuse

thisfirst step is to recognize the abuse for what it is. Verbal abuse can take many forms. thismost easily identifiable forms of verbal abuse include name-calling (e. g.,”b*tch,” “c*nt,” “asshole,” etc.) and extreme angry outbursts (e. g.,yelling or sneering). The most difficult forms to recognize include mocking, belittling, ridiculing, evading questions, sarcasm, confusion, inappropriate silence, and inappropriate criticism and attacks.

Ciò che caratterizza tutte le forme di abuso verbale i che le parole, o la loro mancanza, sono usate per controllare un’altra persona in un modo che la danneggia emotivamente. Se non sei sicuro di essere vittima di abusi verbali, i probabile che tu lo sia. If your abuser’s words (or lack thereof) constantly hurt you, you are almost certainly in a verbally abusive relationship. If you consisthistly feel confused by your partner’s remarks, you are probably in a verbally abusive relationship.

Answer me strongly

Una volta che hai riconosciuto l’abuso, il passo successivo i tentare di cambiare la situazione rendendo consapevole il tuo molestatore di essere verbalmente offensivo. Their abusive verbal behavior can in rare cases be grounded in extreme ignorance and a simple conversation should therefore be able to end the abuse. Ma nella maggior parte dei casi, this semplice approccio non funzionerà.

Se sei in una relazione verbalmente abusiva, c’i un modello regolare di abuso. This sort of pattern cannot ordinarily be broken simply by having a conversation about the issue. A better approach is to call your abuser’s atthistion to the abuse every time it happens.

If you are the target of verbal abuse, don’t engage with the conthist of what is said. Don’t even listhis to it. And definitely don’t try to explain to your abuser why they shouldn’t do what they are doing or why they are wrong. If there is one thing you can be certain about, it is this: you can’t reason with a verbal abuser.

Rather than trying to use logic with your attacker, tell him in a firm voice to stop what he is doing. thistwo words “Stop it!” può essere una risposta efficace L’alternativa i etichettare l’abuso senza menzionarne il contenuto. If the abuser is calling you names, for example, you can reply with “Stop using negative labels to define me,” or simply,”Stop the name-calling!” If none of this works, don’t stick around for more of the verbal beating. Leave the room.

Spend time away from the offender

When you are not in a position to permanently separate yourself from your abuser, find ways to cope until you can. He works to become independent of your author and continues to react strongly to any abuse. To protect your emotional and physical health, spend as much time away from your attacker as possible. Take the dog for a long walk, take the kids to the park, ask a friend to meet you at a café, visit family or run errands. Or, take care of some of these projects you need to do.

Don’t keep the abuse a secret

Because verbal abuse doesn’t leave easily recognizable physical marks, it can be hard for others to know that it’s taking place. Verbal authors often abuse behind closed doors.

Three negotiation tactics to consider before engaging in threats


How to deal with a threat

On August 3, 1981, 12,000 air traffic controllers went on strike after negotiations with the federal government on wages, timetables and benefits were broken. Then-president Ronald Reagan took an uncompromising stand, using aggressive negotiation tactics to threaten the workers that if they didn’t report to work within 48 hours, they would lose their jobs.

thisRole of Threats in Negotiation

On August 5,1981 true to his word, Reagan carried out his threat and fired the 11,359 air-traffic controllers who had not returned to work. Many observers view Reagan’s controversial threat and follow-through as a pivotal moment in his presidency and the foundation for future political victories.

This story highlights the important role of threats in negotiations. Broadly speaking, a threat is a proposition that issues demands and warns of the costs of noncompliance. Even if neither party resorts to them, pothistial threats shadow most negotiations.

A wise threat satisfies your own interests and targets the other side’s interests. Consider whether the threat will truly help you achieve your broader goals. Issuing a threat pothisza provide gratification, but it can also lock you into a course of action and I could be costly.

Three factors to consider before taking risks in a negotiation

To assess whether your negotiation tactics will satisfy or violate your interests, answer these three questions:

1. Is your threat based on emotion? Successful negotiators must resist momentary pressures and unstable emotions. And a threat should never be made under the influence of anger: multiple studies have linked anger to reduced information processing, risky behaviors, and clouded judgment. A reliable rule of thumb is never to make a threat that you did not plan in advance.

2. Will your threat incite a counter-threat that dwarfs your own? Driven by reaction and revenge, threats ofthis provoke counter-threats. Before making a threat, assess the pothistial impact of a retaliatory response, lest you initiate a battle that you aren’t prepared to fight.

3. Will aggressive negotiating tactics cost you more than they cost the other party? Threats are not about punishing the opposition; concern the realization of one’s interests. When you forget this important point, your desire to teach the other side a lesson may cause you to escalate a threat without regard to the toll it I could take on you.

If you’ve determined that a threat would indeed serve your interests, make sure the threat will function as a motivator, not a punishment. Frame it in terms of how compliance will further your counterpart’s interests rather than how noncompliance will thwart them.

Imagine a dispute between a handheld computer company, Jansen, and a community hospital, Riverside. Jansen wanted to become a leading player in the lucrative healthcare market. At the same time, Riverside needed handheld computers to increase efficiency and improve its precarious financial situation. Jansen and Riverside agreed on an information management system but, once installed, discussed whether custom software was included in the deal. Without the specialized software, Riverside pothisza be forced into bankruptcy and Jansen probably would not be paid.

Riverside I could have threatened to secure the software in the language of punishment: “If we can’t reach an agreement, you’ll see little of your money.” Instead, it framed the threat in terms of Jansen’s broader interests: “If we are forced into bankruptcy, you’re unlikely to make progress in this attractive market. However, if we can reach an agreement, you will be seen as our savior and I could become a market leader.” By centering the threat on the benefits of compliance, Riverside increased the probability of reaching an integrative agreement.
