    2021 Best of TZL Podcast on Negotiation and Active Listening for Design Professionals

    2021 Best of TZL Podcast on Negotiation and Active Listening for Design Professionals

    Enjoy this 2021 Best of the TZL Podcast Episode
    On this episode of The Zweig Letter podcast, we sit down with AllanTsang and Dan Oblinger, professional Negotiators from Oblinger and Tsang. We had a far-ranging conversation about Negotiation and Active Listening for Design Professionals. Dan and Allan go deep in these areas to discuss how to overcome scope creep, telling the client “No!” and making sure that you are making better decisions in all company areas.
    Negotiation to us is the non-valid form of communication that brings about an agreement between two or more parties, with each party having the power of consent.
