We just closed out our first day of training today on the question how to build negotiation skills.
The first question that we address is why negotiation is important. Or is it at all? Perhaps we are full of beans, and it is not?
There is a lot to say about this. Without getting into the detail, just consider the quality of communication that we experience these days in Trumpstan. Does Trumpistan generate creative ideas to build from? Or does it just drag us down?
And why has this become our focus anyway? Was the package of conflicts that Trump brought an inevitability?
Good questions. Onward!
