The Real Deal eBook

For the last 40 years Scotwork have been examining one method by which we steer our way through inevitable conflicts, the art and skill of negotiation. Negotiation can help oil the wheels of life by recognising our differences and find a path by which we can get more of what we want.

For the last 3 years we have been blogging our musings on the issues of the day, the ones that have captured our imaginations and the ones that we feel could benefit from that art of negotiation. If you like we have taken real situations and thought through the options that may make a deal possible, or even just more likely. We have put these situations under the negotiators microscope.

However, unknown to the volunteers, a small amount of warmer water was added to this bowl in the last 30 seconds which raised the temperature to a slightly warmer 15C. Some did the ‘short’ experiment first, others did the ‘long’ experiment first...
