On the less dramatic end of the scale are negotiation situations in which one feels he needs a professional advice in order to make the most out of the situation. Think about it for a second, you usually won't make as much money as you would when wisely conducting an important negotiation. Cautiously analyzing the power balance between yourself , clearly defining your goals and based on that building a solid negotiation tactical plan can help you save/gain hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars.
Basically, I believe that anyone can develop the skills to handle any conflict, negotiation or any other confrontational situation. That's why I've created TheOtherDoor. Yet, if your skills are not quite there yet, it may make sense to consider hiring a conflict management professional.
Visualize a conflict or negotiation as a long corridor with many doors on each side. Any conflict has an almost infinite number of solutions.
Too often, those involved in the conflict enter the door marked Compromise.
Certainly, compromise can be a viable alternative to allowing a conflict to drain morale and productivity. Is it the best alternative?
The truth is that compromise is one of many options. To get more of what you want, you’ll need to explore multiple solutions.
Asaf Shani is confrontational situation expert with more than a decade of experience with companies that range in size from one-person firms to Fortune 100 companies. If you have a situation involving a conflict or negotiation, there’s a very good chance I’ve already helped people in your situation.
His experience includes providing consulting services to thousands of people with both personal and professional issues in areas of conflicts, sales, and negotiations.
The consulting process generally requires only one or two sessions. Why? It’s because, according to Asaf's experience, if you can't do it in a short period time, you probably can't do it at all.
If you are willing to look in the mirror (reflect) and take responsibility (act), the consultation will provide you with the structure and skills you need to resolve even the most troubling conflicts.
If hired for consulting services and the consultant come to the conclusion that he can’t help you, he's obligated to say so as soon as possible.
That’s because one believes that a consultant who doesn’t help you may cause damage. If Asaf select to decline or cancel a consulting engagement, you'll be fully refunded.
