Whether you recognize it or not, you negotiate everyday.
It can be in small ways:
– who will work what schedule this week
– what project tasks you own
– where you eat dinner with friends

– how much you will pay for your next car
– will you get the pay raise you desire
– can you and your customer agree on the direction of a project
Use this simple framework to think about how you approach negotiations and whether or not your approach is working for you.
