Expanding on the principles, insights, and wisdom that made Getting to Yes a worldwide bestseller, Roger Fisher and Scott Brown offer a straightforward approach to creating relationships that can deal with difficulties as they arise. Getting Together takes you step-by-step through initiating, negotiating, and sustaining enduring relationships-in business, in government, between friends, and in the family.


The Steps:
Rationality – Balance emotion with reason.
Understanding – Learn how others see things.
Communication – Always consult before deciding . . . and listen
Reliability – Be wholly trustworthy, but not wholly trusting.
Persuasion, not coercion – Negotiate side by side.
Acceptance – Deal seriously with those with whom you differ.
