As the need for understanding and applying the strategic principles of negotiation and conflict resolution are becoming very important in dealings among nations, governments, organizations, communities, labor union and individuals, it has become germane that people of all works of life get retooled in the arts and science of negotiation and conflict resolution. This would enable parties involved to achieve desired interests, ensure equity, collaborations, eschew regrets, and avoid ambiguity of litigation and the extraneous cost/losses that may be part of the outcomes.
