The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - [4] THINK WIN-WIN

In order to establish great and strong relationships we must commit to create Win-Win situations that are capable to satisfy each party.
In his book, Covey explains that there are six paradigms of human interaction:
  • Win-Win: In which both parties win and the conditions that have been created are satisfying for everyone.
  • Win-Lose: Are situations in which usually the person with more power, high position or personality impose his conditions to get more benefits.
  • Lose-Win: Generally happens when someone is quick to appease and can’t tolerate a long confrontation.
  • Lose-Lose: When the people that are involved are very determined and stubborn and they prefer to get a bad deal rather than giving others more benefits.
  • Win: People that have Win mentality usually don’t care about what the other gets. What matters is that they get what they want.
  • Win-Win or No deal: if no one can reach a deal that brings mutually benefits, there is no deal.

The Win-Lose or Lose-Win situations just one person gets what he wants, but this will negatively impact the relationship between them and is a temporary solution, just for the moment.
An important factor for achieving a Win-Win situation is the Abundance Mentality, that means that there are plenty of resources for everyone and we all can get benefits.
But the majority think with a Scarcity Mentality in which if you get it, I don’t. Having this mentality will impact you relationships in a negative way, giving you hard times to share your success or recognition and will block you from being happy about other people’s success
‎.
In an interpersonal leadership the more we are committed to get a Win-Win situation, the more powerful our influence will be.
