Our career success depends to a large extent on the trusting, dynamic relationships that you build at every stage of your professional development. By taking a strategic approach to strengthening key relationships, you give yourselves the best opportunity to make strong, lasting connections with influential individuals. These connections help you to have successful outcomes in current situations and lay the groundwork for future career growth and opportunity.

Disagreements, fr om time to time, are not only inevitable, but are a natural dynamic that develops between people. Left unresolved, however, these disagreements and conflicts can waste enormous amounts of your time and energy and can affect the bottom line in lost productivity.

Many people actively try to avoid disagreements to maintain a peaceful and cooperative environment. Yet, you can gain so much from people who have different opinions, if you can learn to view these situations as learning opportunities and deal with them in an agreeable and professional way. In fact, research shows that successfully resolving disagreements and issues with work associates or in your personal life ultimately results in greater mutual respect and a more positive relationship.

Regardless of the position you hold in your organization, your work day is a series of negotiations.
The ability to use all-win negotiation skills can make all the difference in your negotiating success and is essential to influencing people and facilitating constructive, positive relationships.
