At 88 Owls we believe in equipping today's leaders with skills they need to succeed in life and business. We feel passionate that negotiating well is essential to developing these three characteristics of a good leader:
1. Make better decisions and deals - Good leaders ask good questions, know how to empathize with their counterparts, and listen effectively. At 88 Owls, we train our clients to use a system that ensures they have the communication skills needed to identify other's legitimate needs, as well as those that minimize the possibility of being deceived. Our clients make well-informed decisions and lasting agreements because they gather critical information.
2. Resolve conflict and handle difficult people - Good leaders know how to diffuse difficult situations and work with challenging personalities. Using 88 Owls' negotiation system, clients learn to develop the right mindset, manage emotions, and remain confident when facing potentially explosive situations. They also learn how to create a safe environment for all parties, so that strong agreements can be reached even when counterparts do not trust one another.
3. Get what you want without compromising - Good leaders refuse to compromise their desired outcomes and personal integrity. They know that no deal is better than being stuck in a bad deal. 88 Owls’ clients are equipped to negotiate respectfully and assertively without using leverage, threats, or coercion. They know when to say no, and they also learn that encouraging their counterparts to do the same leads to long-standing agreements that are more beneficial to each party.
