Everything we talked about since the start of the “mastering” series has been about relationships and making them stronger. Having a solid contract is a natural extension of those goals. When you have a great contract with the loop holes closed, you can focus on building a relationship as that is critical to project success. So, in short: A contract is a relationship and you create a project family. You agree to be bound together to get project management goals on the same page and deliver results.
We’ve made it to the end of Mastering the Art of Contracts and Negotiations webinar series and what ties this all together is you. Who do you want to be when faced with an ethical dilemma? You really get to choose. You have the tools to empower yourself no matter the pressures on you to do something that’s outside your ethical circle. Your life is made up of your choices.

How much time do we waste thinking about, avoiding, or worrying about having a hard conversation and what does that do to your productivity? To your work relationships? You can have a "silent" conversation rattle around in your head for months if you avoid "it." Of IF the hard conversation you had goes poorly, you can have the 'I should have said this" conversation in your head. What if you learned how to have powerful conversations that led to better outcomes and stronger relationships? In the 1st part of this webinar, we will explore IF a conversation is needed, how to speak from a position of power, and delineate the types of conversations so you can better manage your emotions. I would recommend listening to my conflict resolution webinar so you have a foundation before launching into this discussion.

Using mediation skills instead of imposing a decision, you will be able to apply communication skills, objectivity, and creativity to help disputants reach their own voluntary solution to the conflict.
Negotiating is an extension of building community. You will not get anything you want if the other person feels slighted or if they do not think they are getting an equitable deal. You will have to work harder to get people MORE of what they want so you can have MORE of what you want. Not everything in the negotiation has to be a down-and-out battle between you and the vendor. Be flexible, and the vendor will usually follow suit. Negotiating specifications with a vendor is not easy as you both have your own agendas. This process of negotiating the project’s requirements starts with the first phone call and continues until the last bill is paid.
