Overall remarks and questions
- understanding your own goal and the goal of the person you are dealing with is fundamental
- it is all, once again, about how well you gathered information ahead of the negotiation process itself
- the goal is not to give in or force the outcome, the goal is to actually have a mutually positive outcome (if you wish to reiterate collaboration)
- see game theory and the repeated prisoner dilemma
- go beyond what is already on the table
- a bit like what is proposed with Blue Ocean Strategy
- note that visualizing Venn diagrams can help
- The brain during mediation by François Bogacz and Jeremy Lack, Convirgente/Altenburger May 2010
- based on David Rock SCARF model
