Show highlights:

1:50 The material from today’s program is from Dr. Marty’s book “Negotiation, From Conflict To Cooperation”. Negotiation is a central part of every relationship.

5:28 The issues that are important, and that are involved, in every negotiation: being accepted; being respected; saving face; pride; being listened to.

6:00 You can have a 60% chance of a successful negotiation, just by listening and being respectful.

6:15 With 100% certainty, your negotiation will cause collateral damage, if you are not mindful of the other person, and their needs.

6:45 The collaborator is looking for a solution that will result in a better, closer, relationship.

7:30 We talk about the three most important things of negotiating well.

8:10 We get a live example of how voice tone is very important within negotiation. Voice sets the tone for the whole negotiation.

9:15 We hear a live example of active listening.

9:50 Understand, before you ask to be understood.

10:00 Learn how to talk about details within a negotiation. Go for the details!

11:00 What steps can you take to lower the emotional temperature in a negotiation? We learn some really key ideas on how to do this.

11:45 Why might we want to stay with our rational mind, rather than our emotional mind, at key times in a negotiation?

17:30 We listen to several live role-plays of how these tips can be applied.

21:40 We recap all of the ideas covered in these role-plays.
