How to Get More of What You Need and Want in Negotiations

You may not think of yourself as a negotiator, but you are. All of us negotiate every day with family, friends and co-workers, even if we don’t think of what we’re doing as negotiation. Negotiation is getting what we need and want through a process of interacting with others, and some of us are clearly better at it than others. Knowing how to get what you need and want from others in a principled, win-win fashion is a major life skill, and one that anyone can learn. You will learn how to identify your personal negotiating style, how to get clear on what you actually need and want, and how to use “The Magic Question” for a win-win outcome.
