Harvard's Pricipled Negotiation
Getting our boss, our colleagues or our partner to say ‘YES!’ to suggestions would make life simplier for many of us.
Unfortunately, convincing others and stating your point of view can be tricky sometimes.
Harvard' s Principled Negotiation was designed for such situations by Prof. Roger Fisher and his team at Harvard Law School. It is a popular negotiation tool that explains how to discuss and communicate more efficiently.
Emphasising interests instead of positions, differentiating between factual and relationship levels or using objective standards are only a few suggestions that can help reach goals more easily and effectively.
Successful negotiations are always based on techniques and tools. Harvard' s Principled Negotiation pushes debates and arguments to a new level, because its use provides confidence and constancy.
