Mehrad Nazari, a frequent Guest Presenter at Rancho La Puerta, took a few minutes recently to discuss his book Enlightened Negotiation with me. Mehrad Nazari has a Ph.D. in Leadership and Human Behavior. His book is like a pot of gold at the end of a multicolored wellness rainbow.

“Be strong and lift other people up. There are times to act with love and compassion and times we need to say “no,” so that it’s a balanced negotiation. Power is about the strength of the mind. That is the source of power. How do you play that? You must know yourself, know the other party, and know the context of the negotiating.”
