Negotiations occur in your place of business, internally with stakeholders, externally with clients and vendors. Do you find you negotiate with your family and friends, too? How well prepared are you? How do you prepare? Are you looking to leave nothing on the table or are you a constantly giving ground? Are you trying to split right down the middle?
