Win-Win

Author: David Goldwich Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/09/2020

We all negotiate every day, yet few people ever learn how to negotiate. Those who do usually learn the old-school, adversarial approach that is only useful in a one-off negotiation where you will never see the other party again. However, such transactions are becoming increasingly rare because most of us deal with the same people repeatedly-our spouses and children, our friends and colleagues, our customers and bosses. We need to achieve successful results for ourselves while maintaining healthy relationships with our negotiating partners. In today's interconnected world, a win-win outcome is fast becoming the only acceptable result. This book will show you how to get that win-win. You will also learn how to: distinguish interests from positions and uncover hidden interests use negotiating alchemy to create value out of nothing appreciate the beauty of no on your way to yes force your counterpart to consider your needs frame issues to your advantage recognize when to make the first offer make and demand concessions know when to compromise and when to try for something better develop a powerful Plan B so you cannot lose manage emotions, biases, and other psychological pitfalls use common negotiating tactics and counter-tactics overcome an impasse negotiate successfully with powerful counterparts prepare for any negotiation using an eight-step template and much more!

In the Shadow of Organization

In the Shadow of Organization

Author: Robert B. Denhardt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/08/2020

This book deals with the dilemma of individual autonomy in an organizational society. It argues that the organizations that we established to work for us have instead imprisoned us. Drawing upon critical social theorists like Habermas, depth psychologists like Jung, and phenomenologists like Husserl, author Robert B. Denhardt shows how the ethic of organization inhibits the individual's search for meaning and then discusses strategies for enhancing the individual's role. He champions independence, expressiveness, and creativity over discipline, regulation, and obedience. To this first paperback edition, Denhardt has added a new introduction that focuses on leadership's key role in humanizing organizations, as well as a bibliographical update.

Conflict Resolution Grail

Conflict Resolution Grail

Author: Meysa Maleki Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/06/2020

Global conflict is one of the top challenges the world faces today. Our survival as the human race demands that we pay attention to our own role in conflict. Resolving conflict on a global scale requires change at the level of individuals. Lawyer and Mediator Meysa Maleki introduces the everyday person to the elements of conflict, the sub-conversations and the skills that are required to resolve conflict effectively. However, her solution to addressing human conflict goes beyond just the latest conflict resolution theory, negotiation techniques, and the interpersonal skills of a mediator. She draws on the strengths of human beings, their capacity for compassion and their immense potential to change their subconscious programming through awareness. This book weaves together research ranging from human genetics, evolution, communications theory, neuroscience, world history, psychology, and sociology to reframe our understanding of conflict. It provides the everyday person as well as professionals who devote their careers to working with conflict situations with an integrated approach to conflict resolution, one that draws from the east and the west. Meysa Maleki provides a new paradigm, one that is based on awareness, compassion, and a negotiator's toolbox.
