Negotiation is a common problem-solving process that people use to make decisions and manage disputes. Negotiations are so common they can occur in a person's daily life. For example, spouses might negotiate on how money is spent, parents and children might negotiate on a suitable bedtime, employers and employees might negotiate salary, or a professionals and clients might negotiate on the terms of a contract. Negotiation is a process in which two or more people voluntarily discuss their differences and attempt to reach a joint decision on their common concerns (Moore, July 2009). According to Moore (2009), "Negotiation requires participants to identify issues about which they differ, educate each other about their needs and interests, generate possible settlement options and bargain over the terms of the final agreement."
