Negotiating Is Non-Negotiable

We’ve been getting a lot of communication books to read around here lately that seem a little bit adversarial at first glance: a tome on the virtues of arguing, and now one on negotiation. The Only Negotiating Guide You’ll Ever Need, Revised and Updated: 101 Ways to Win Every Time in Any Situation by Peter Stark and Jane Flaherty adroitly covers the topic of negotiation, starting with identifying your own negotiation style and then discussing techniques for ways to play well with others who might practice different styles.

Negotiation isn’t evil, it’s essential – and, as the authors point out, it comes up far more often than we think, even when we’re determining who in our household does the dishes or takes out the trash. They do discuss how to deal with negotiation bullies, but also how it’s possible to much more often come out with mutually beneficial outcomes. Which we all want, amirite?

We don’t have kids, but many of the examples in the book are very child-friendly. It makes sense to recommend this one to those in the business world and to parents as well.
