Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and financial planner, and mediator extraordinaire Stephanie Maloney explains why ultimatums don’t work, but being honest about what you want and need works like a charm.
She’s got the whole story!
One of Peace Talks’ finest and most talented mediators, Stephanie Maloney, CDFA (certified divorce financial analyst), CFA illustrates why it’s worth it to be completely honest about your true interests and goals when you’re negotiating or mediating. So many people think it’s a better strategy to hide their true positions, but often it makes more sense to be forthright. A heartfelt request with an understanding of why you feel it’s important makes any request easier to hear–and often to agree with.
