January 2019: Getting to Yes

Negotiation is key in all areas of business. I have started to put a lot of my focus on increasing this skill and this book did not let me down.

Check out the description and review below:

The key text on problem-solving negotiation-updated and revised 

Since its original publication nearly thirty years ago, Getting to Yes has helped millions of people learn a better way to negotiate. One of the primary business texts of the modern era, it is based on the work of the Harvard Negotiation Project, a group that deals with all levels of negotiation and conflict resolution.

Getting to Yes offers a proven, step-by-step strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict. Thoroughly updated and revised, it offers readers a straight- forward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting angry-or getting taken.”

 

I focus on constantly adding knowledge through podcasts, audiobooks, youtube education channels, etc. However, I made a promise to myself in 2015 that I would read one book a month and I have stuck to that. I don’t always read paperback but I always find ways to get the information because I max out on my time. Take advantage of audio books and start listening while you’re in the car. It’s been great for me because I pick up daily nuggets that I implement every day. Check out some of the other books of the month to see if anything jumps out to you.

Bonus:

Here is a top 5 list if you’re looking for a place to get started:
