While these instances are challenging, if we are committed to our objectives, we can still be effective negotiators by winning their willingness to cooperate.

  • Apply leverage without resorting to the force that damages relationships
  • Transform aggressive lawyers into productive negotiators
  • Convert hardball tactics into opportunities for understanding, relationship-building and productive dialog
