BEST LEADERSHIP BOOKS:

How can you expect to get to Yes with others if you haven’t gotten to Yes with yourself?

The greatest obstacle to successful agreements and satisfying relationships is not the other side. The biggest obstacle is actually ourselves—our natural tendency to react in ways that do not serve our true interests. But this obstacle can also become our biggest opportunity.

William Ury’s Getting to Yes with Yourself offers six proven steps to get what you really want in life. The effective tips, strategies, and techniques in Getting to Yes with Yourself can be used by everyone, every day, in every situation. 

In Getting to Yes with Yourself, you’ll learn how to:

uncover the inner obstacles that are keeping you from getting to Yes

reach positive agreements with others

develop healthy relationships

make your business more productive              

live a more satisfying life

William Ury, co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation, is one of the world’s leading experts on negotiation and mediation. He is currently a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Harvard Negotiation Project. He is the author of Getting to Yes with Yourself (HarperOne, January 2015), The Power of a Positive No, Getting Past No, and The Third Side, and co-author (with Roger Fisher and Bruce Patton) of Getting to Yes.

Getting to Yes, the world’s bestselling book on negotiation, has almost twelve million copies in print in English and has been translated into thirty-four languages. “No other book in the field comes close to its impact on the way practitioners, teachers, researchers, and the public approach negotiation,” comments the National Institute on Dispute Resolution. During the 1980s, he helped the U.S. and Soviet governments create nuclear crisis centers designed to avert an accidental nuclear war. In that capacity, he served as a consultant to the Crisis Management Center at the White House. William is co-founder of the Climate Parliament, which offers members of congress and parliament across the world an Internet-based forum to address practical solutions for climate change. Time magazine described the organization as a “Google for global politics.”

He is founder of the Abraham Path Initiative, which seeks to build bridges between cultures by developing  a cultural route in the Middle East that retraces the footsteps of Abraham and his family through the power of Story, Walking and Hospitality. ABC’s Christiane Amanpour calls the Abraham Path “an unprecedented initiative to break down barriers and foster communication in the most divided region of the world." William is the recipient of the Whitney North Seymour Award from the American Arbitration Association and the Distinguished Service Medal from the Russian Parliament. His work has been widely featured in the media from The New York Times to the Financial Times and from CNN to the BBC. He has a popular TED talk, “The Walk from No to Yes." Trained as a social anthropologist, with a B.A. from Yale and a Ph.D. from Harvard, William has carried out his research on negotiation not only in the boardroom and at the bargaining table, but also among the Bushmen of the Kalahari and the clan warriors of New Guinea.

Getting More is the #1 book to read for your career, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Career site, and one of the top 25 must-read books in your life, according to Business Insider. But it is much more than that. Rejecting outdated tactics like power, logic and leverage, Getting More focuses on new psychological strategies of perceptions, emotions and cultural diversity to create four times as much value.

Better jobs and raises, kids who listen, billion dollar deals, countless discounts, more profits, better and cheaper travel and more control over daily life are among the results gained by the 1.3 million buyers of Getting More and the 400 people profiled in this life-changing book.

Stuart Diamond is one of the world’s foremost experts on negotiation. His negotiation course at top-ranked Wharton Business School has been the most sought-after by MBA students there over the past 20 years. Diamond and his team of 25 have trained more than 12,000 Googlers in his innovative model of human interaction. Professor Diamond has trained more than 5,000 Special Ops soldiers, the elite of the U.S. military: Navy SEALs, Green Berets, Marines, Special Forces and others in finding better ways to negotiate – from collecting better intelligence to dealing with the chain of command to meeting more family needs. “Saves lives,” was the comment written about his model by U.S. Special Operations Command.

Professor Diamond’s book on negotiations, Getting More: How To Be A More Persuasive Person in Work and Life, is a New York Times bestseller and #1 U.S. business bestseller on the Wall Street Journal and USA Today lists. Worldwide it has sold more than 1.2 million copies and has been translated into 19 languages. The Wall Street Journal’s career site calls Getting More “#1 book to read for your career.” Lawyers Weekly called it “phenomenal.” The Commander of U.S. Special Ops has placed it on his read list of 15 books; it is only one of two books on military science.

Among the 30,000 people Diamond has taught or advised in 50+ countries, more than 220 are managers and executives from the Fortune 500 companies. Another 25% are of the Global 1000 community. He has trained school children in South Africa, bankers in Dubai, art dealers in Arizona and car dealers in Russia. He has also headed or managed companies in various industries. He has been chairman of a publicly-traded U.S. high tech company in the wireless space, convinced 3,000 farmers in Bolivia to forsake coca for bananas, operated a medical services company performing laser eye surgery and worked on Wall Street as an energy futures executive.

Besides Wharton, Professor Diamond has also taught at Penn Law School, Penn Engineering, Harvard, Oxford, Columbia, NYC, UC Berkeley and USC. He is also an expert in cross-cultural negotiation and diversity and has advised on the subject to the United Nations, World Bank and many companies. He has written 3 books, 2 documentary films and more than 2,000 articles, including dozens on page 1 of The New York Times.
