Aikido Negotiation Tactics

Aikido is a martial art based on principles of high integrity. In Aikido, you defend yourself against attack, without harming yourself or your opponent. Aikido is designed to use your opponents force against them. You simply redirect it, guide it, and diffuse it. This principle works very well in the context of a negotiation. You can use the force of your counterpart's arguments for your purposes without even upsetting them. In both negotiations and Aikido there are moves that allow you to evade and redirect the attack.
