Successful Negotiations:
" The secret... is really listening
to the other side-to
what they say (and do) as
well as to what they don't.
Knowing what their priorities
and goals are provides valuable
guidance to structure
a deal that works for both

ideal goal. "

focus on reaching the goal
can be the difference between
success and failure. "
