IT’S TIME! Negotiate Effectively at Work and at Home
The Shark Tank’s Daymond John, branding expert and creator of FUBU fashions, is a street-wise and sometimes unconventional negotiator. He credits part of his success in founding FUBU with “negotiating from ignorance.” A key to effective negotiation, John says, is paying attention to our personal brand because every day, we advertise our character, our passion, our integrity –
ourselves – at home and at work. Sharpening that brand – knowing where you’re coming from – drives success.
