Win/Win

I am in the middle of reading Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. A paragraph I just read offers a relevant reminder that I wanted to share here. It reads as follows:

“Many people think in dichotomies, in either/or terms. They think if you’re nice, you’re not tough. But Win/Win is nice… and tough. It’s twice as tough as Win/Lose. To go for Win/Win, you not only have to be nice, you have to be courageous. You not only have to be empathetic, you have to be confident. You not only have to be considerate and sensitive, you have to be brave. To do that, to achieve that balance between courage and consideration, is the essence of real maturity and is fundamental to Win/Win.”
