The Basics of Conflict Resolution
OK, you've done your homework. You are sensitized to issues of ego, you are determined not to be obsessed with being right, and you are clear about your goal (i.e., getting a deal).

You have a clear sense of your principles and your priorities. You have your two lists, one labeled "Gottas" and the other labeled, "Wannas." You are ready.
