A Guide to Becoming a Skilled Negotiator"Kathleen Kelley Reardon is a skilled negotiator both in the sense of coming to a winwin situation with others, but also using her considerable intellect to negotiate the currents of life. The Skilled Negotiator is a book, therefore, written by a skilled negotiator. Highly recommended!"--Tony Buzan, author, The Mind Map Book (BBC)"The capability of influencing others is one of the most globally sought after skills in getting things done whether it is in a matrixed corporate environment or your own personal relationships with others. The Skilled Negotiator provides a practical road map that defines the language required for successful negotiation and removes much of the mystery, which allows practical application to the job and life in general. This is a book you will want to revisit time and again to practice your skills of negotiation."--Glenn Latta, senior director, Global Learning & Development, Pfizer"Blends compelling research, conceptual understanding and practical tools to build a facile negotiation mindset. Professor Reardons extraordinary expertise comes through on every page."--Barry Leskin, chief learning officer, Chevron"Rarely has the topic of business negotiation advanced as far as Reardon has done in this book. The Skilled Negotiatior is an exceptional breakout book. I wish it had been available years ago."--Tania A. Modic, Western Investments Capital"Kathleen Reardon has been my negotiating mentor in three charities over twenty years; with her help we have raised over150 million and we help over 125,000 children each month! Negotiating is an art and science: its skills can be learned . . . and Dr. Reardon is its best teacher."--Peter Samuelson, founder, Starlight Childrens Foundation, First Star Public Policy Initiative
