A straightforward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken-and without getting angry.

Getting to YES offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict-whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats. Based on the work of the Harvard Negotiation Project, a group that deals continually with all levels of negotiation and conflict resolution from domestic to business to international, Getting to YES tells you how to:

    • •Separate the people from the problem;

 

    • •Focus on interests, not positions;

 

    • •Work together to create options that will satisfy both parties; and

 

    •Negotiate successfully with people who are more powerful, refuse to play by the rules, or resort to "dirty tricks."

 

"This is by far the best thing I've ever read about negotiation. It is equally relevant for the individual who would like to keep his friends, property, and income and the statesman who would like to keep the peace." –John Kenneth Galbraith

"The authors have packed a lot of commonsensical observation and advice into a concise, clearly written little book." –Business Week "A coherent brief for ‘win-win' negotiations which, if it takes hold, may help convert the Age of Me to the Era of We." –Newsweek
