Your personal and professional lives are full of opportunities to negotiate. Compromise is an art, not a competition. By unlocking the power of empathy and understanding, you can develop strategies to influence positive outcomes every time.
Establishing a personal connection means a lot in a world where people can feel like anonymous entities. Individuals can feel lost among large, faceless organizations, big businesses, and busy strangers. Whether dealing with law enforcement during a traffic stop or negotiating to buy a house, present yourself as a unique person with specific circumstances, feelings, and needs. A little bit of effort goes a long way.
