Here’s what I got out of this interview with Kwame Christian…

1. We negotiate every day

It’s hard to go a single day without negotiating. We negotiate at home, at school, at work and in business. Anytime you enter a communication with someone where either one of you, or both of you, want something, you negotiate.

2. Important negotiation strategies

When entering a negotiation, you need to a) prepare for the negotiation, b) listen to the other person, c) look for a ‘win-win’ situation.

3. Don’t be afraid to negotiate

Negotiating is not a bad thing! As long as you are respectful, you will always be satisfied with your life if you negotiate. If you don’t negotiate, you will never get the things you want.
