Leadership is not about a role. It’s about actions and a mindset that is focused on taking initiative. In order to be an effective leader, you must learn to negotiate. Similarly, negotiators have to lead others to the most beneficial solutions possible.

Did you know that you negotiate every day? It’s something everyone does, yet most people don’t know it, do it well, or think strategically about how to achieve optimal outcomes. We live in a world where negotiation has become a significant part of our daily lives. In fact, according to research from the MarketWatch Centre for Negotiation, 80% of our communication can be described as a form of negotiation.
