Negotiating Life’s Conflicts with Greater Confidence

by Hal Movius

How to purchase:

About this book:

Our lives are filled with negotiations – at home, at work and in social settings. Whether we’re negotiating a million dollar contract or just trying to settle on who will take out the trash, we’re negotiating. Often these exchanges are rife with emotion. Sometimes we give in to keep the peace or we view the disagreement as a battle of wills, pushing hard for what we want, and demanding the other party capitulate. In Resolve: Negotiating Life’s Conflicts with Greater Confidence, negotiation expert and psychologist Hal Movius points to a lack of confidence as the number one reason negotiations fail.

Drawing on 25 years of research, Movius demonstrates that true confidence is grounded in three things: poise, mastery, and judgment.

  • We know what we should do but can’t keep our cool: we lack poise.
  • We know what we should do but don’t know how to do it:  we lack mastery.
  • We know what we should do, but misconstrue the situation, the task, and/or other people: we lack judgment.

Resolve offers practical ways to increase our confidence so that we turn conflicts – big or small into opportunities for connection.
