Margaret Ann Neale

People often see negotiating as an adversarial process, says Stanford Business professor Margaret Ann Neale. But that’s wrong, she says. In her new book, “Getting (More of) What You Want,” Neale suggests that the best negotiators focus on problem solving and building relationships. She joins us in-studio to offer strategies for negotiating in the workplace and at home, whether it’s getting a raise, selling a company or just figuring out who should put the kids to bed.

    It is interesting that you bring up the ghost-writing by Terry Schwartz of Trump’s “Art of the Deal”. If find it odd that Schwartz deliberately lied in the writing of the book, and he knew it. He lied because he needed the money.
    Now, he has ghost-writers’ remorse.
    But all journalist lie, and distort the truth. They are encouraged by their employers. And also by the fact, that if the story is truthful, it wouldn’t sell. And if it doesn’t sell, the (ghost) author get very little compensation. Schwartz made a killing on “Art of the Deal”, and now he’s coming forth to tell us that he lied. Please! He’s got no credibility at this point.

    OK, so more time off if not good for the employer? This used to be common sense, it’s still common sense in Europe. Time off is good for productivity instead of burning out employees. I really hate how this country’s work culture has deteriorated.
