Getting to Yes is a straightorward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken - and without getting angry.
It offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict - whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats. Based on the work of Harvard Negotiation Project, a group that deal continually with all levels of negotiations and conflict resolutions from domestic to business to international,
Getting to Yes tells you how to: Separate the people from the problem
Focus on interests, not positions
Work together to create opinions that will satisfy both parties
negotiate successfully with people who are more powerful, refuse to play by the rules, or resort to "dirty tricks"
You've heard it all before, "be positive, know what you want, invent options for mutual gain." But have you developed a strategy? Originally written as negotiation tactics for lawyers, this book offers advice on getting what you want. It addresses issues such as what to accept from those you negotiate with and what to offer without giving up anything on your side.
