relationship

By on / Glossary

As one of the “seven elements,” relationship refers to the relationship a negotiator has or wants with other parties. This may include his or her relationship both with those across the table and with anyone else who might affect the negotiation or be affected by the negotiator’s reputation. The conduct and outcome of a negotiation have the potential to either damage or strengthen a relationship. (Michael L. Moffitt and Robert C. Bordone, eds., Handbook of Dispute Resolution [Program on Negotiation/Jossey-Bass, 2005], 282)
