Whether we are faced with business transactions or personal interactions, negotiation is the best approach to deal effectively with conflicting interests. The outcome of a negotiation has the potential to change the course of a business, a career, or a life. As Sun Tzu observed in the Art of War, “Therefore a victorious army first wins and then seeks battle; a defeated army seeks battle to achieve victory.”
Who Needs to Improve Their Negotiation Skills?
The answer is simple – all of us need to improve our negotiation skills. We are negotiating all the time – in our personal and social lives, and especially in our professional lives. Every time we communicate with another person there is the potential for negotiation. Negotiation is an essential life skill – not just a skill used in commercial situations. In today’s increasingly complex and competitive marketplace, effective negotiation skills are key to personal and organizational success.
