WARRIOR of Spirit

Ask almost anyone what their greatest obstacle is, and they are likely to say themselves. What we can learn, and you can learn to do so in this episode, is to get to yes within yourself. To let go of the inner battle, look at your most worthy opponent in the eye, which is yourself, and negotiate a win/win deal.

William Ury is the co-founder of Harvard’s program on negotiation. He’s one of the world’s best known and most influential experts on negotiation. He is the co-author of “Getting to Yes,” the best selling negotiation book in the world, and has taught negotiations to tens of thousands of people around the world. He has served as a mediator in conflicts ranging from boardroom battles, to labor strikes, and from family feuds, to civil wars. His newest book is “Getting to Yes with Yourself and Other Worthy Opponents.”
