Conflict is a major issue in the business world, and the skill of negotiations is critical in every conflict. It is often said that a person who argues his own legal case has hired a fool as his attorney. Likewise, when discussing important issues, negotiations should be carried out by third-party professionals instead of the businesses or parties themselves. Knowledge of when a position is emotional and unsupported, the other sides perspective, what elements of a settlement are most crucial, and the best strategy to handle conflict is at the heart of success.
SOS has certified training and years of experience in negotiations. The owner of SOS placed in the top 1% of all time in Harvard’s negotiation contests by using win-win principles, doing the groundwork to gain an understanding of the facts and options with a focus on the long-term perspective of each party.
The full toolbox of SOS is used in conflict management – whether its simple business conflicts, mediation, or the conflict has escalated to legal action. SOS is not a legal firm, but we find we add value in conflicts of all kinds. Our unemotional, fact verifying, holistic perspective has been of value time after time. Our creative and strategic gifts are also highly valued . Some categories that we find ourselves serving include:
- Conflict management
- Business contracts and leases
- Legal cases
- Partnership exit strategies
