Win-Win Attitudes get you where you want to go.
Reading this without also reading my previous two Win-Win Attitude posts
is like licking the Barbecue sauce off a nicely charred steak. The flavor may be good, but the food value is limited.
There are a all kinds of Attitudes I could have held as I stood before the judge. I could have angrily thought the judicial system was just going for the easy money by picking on minor traffic offenders instead chasing real criminals.
Anger or Cooperation?
Choosing a cooperative Attitude combined with having a good driving record proved to be of value both to the court and to me, a win-win.
- Having an Attitude that benefits everyone involved is not only better for everyone involved, it’s especially better for the holder of that Attitude.
- The judge agreed. Based on my good driving record and on the win-win nature of my proposal, he let me do a couple school presentations instead paying the tickets, thereby confirming my hope that having a win-win Attitude is the best way to negotiate.
- Living with a Win-Win Attitude requires that you be couragous and considerate.When you have a Win-Win Attitude, you’re empathic. You speak and live in a way that takes other people’s feelings into account. You’re cooperative instead of competitive.
People living a Win-Win Attitude are considerate, sensitive and confident.
