Impact on the Organization
As organizations increasingly decentralize and empower front-line staff, far more employees need strong negotiation skills. More than ever, employees need to negotiate effectively both within and outside the organization. They find themselves negotiating in areas ranging from budgeting and goal-setting to resource allocation. Effective negotiation is increasingly essential to problem-solving in complex environments with diverse stakeholders, and to obtaining commitments from colleagues, partners, and customers. Just as negotiation skills are crucial to organizational success, they are equally crucial to individual success: preparing your people for career growth now involves teaching them the proven best practices of successful negotiators.

They master a six-step negotiating process, and then apply this framework to prepare for upcoming, anticipated negotiations.
