Effective Negotiation Skills

Negotiation is the process of two people or groups resolving their conflicts or issues and reaching an acceptable solution to move forward. Leadership involves the use of persuasion and negotiation with an intention to achieve a win-win outcome. To persuade people to follow your lead, you need to appeal to their interests, communicate with them effectively, and sell your vision—all of which are part of effective negotiation.
