In the face of an increasingly tech-driven workplace, there has been a rise in the need for human capabilities that can't be replicated by machines. These include creativity, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal skills such as negotiation which can drive the competitive edge in business.1
Collaborative negotiation places the human element at the center of all deal-making and mediations. This ensures that all parties involved feel that they have a sense of control and that the outcome is a win-win situation. It also fosters transparency and trust, separates the people from the problem and sets the tone for future conflict resolutions.
Whether you’re negotiating contracts and agreements, influencing major organizational decisions, or looking to better maintain relationships with clients and colleagues, you’ll benefit from developing a robust, but considerate style of negotiation.
