The Value of Win Win


"He that complies against his will is of his own opinion still."

Samuel Butler
17th century British poet


One of the tenants of contract law holds that benefit must exit for both parties. You can force agreement but better for both parties to feel they've been treated fairly.

True in management/employee relations as well.
