Day to day we negotiate to get what we want, and to get more of what we want we have to be stronger negotiators. Strong negotiation means greater power in our lives. The strongest and least appreciated negotiator in American history is President Eisenhower.
Strong negotiating gets us a better job with more pay, a happier and more harmonious home life, and respect and regard from our peers. Negotiating with strength leads to power and success. Our strength as negotiators comes from our own skills and our integrity as individuals.
So how do we become more powerful negotiators? How do we get more of what we want? The best way is to learn from those who are the most successful negotiators. The least recognized and most successful American negotiator is the 34th President of the United States, General Dwight David Eisenhower.
President Dwight David Eisenhower (Eisenhower) is commemorated as the Supreme Commander of Allied Forces during WWII and as a successful two-term US President in the US from 1953-1960. He is remembered for the US Interstate Highway System, US public school integration (Brown vs Board of Education 1954), and for presiding over a post WWII US industrial economic expansion. Eisenhower was one of the world’ greatest leaders with upstanding moral credibility. The most essential skill that Eisenhower practiced was strong negotiation. In practicing strong negotiation, Eisenhower became the most successful American diplomat in US history. Eisenhower became a great leader by being a great negotiator.
