Thought for the week

"Win is not a technique. It is a total philosophy of human interaction. Win / Win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions. With a win/ win solution, all parties feel good about the decision and feel committed to the action plan. Win / win sees life as a cooperative, not a competitive arena. Win / win is based on the paradigm that there is plenty for everybody, that one person's success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the success of others."

Stephen R Covey (Seven habits of Highly Effective People 1990)
