dad-book1Hi! I am the author of this blog and am glad you have stumbled across it. After a career in corporate life developing negotiation and people management skills and, later, as a management consultant applying these skills, I felt the urge to write about negotiations.

As I sat, pen in hand, I struggled to come up with something new and compelling in the field.

I realized that the skills and tools required of a professional negotiator were very similar to those of a good manager. It seemed logical that the same skillset negotiators and managers need to be effective should help resolve personal, every day conflicts we face.

I hope you find this site and my book, the Seven Secrets to WINNING Without Losing a Friend enjoyable and helpful.
