An Interview with Dr Mehrad Nazari, Founder of Enlightened Negotiation

An Interview with Dr Mehrad Nazari, Founder of Enlightened Negotiation 

Dr. Mehrad Nazari is a consultant, teacher, facilitator, and speaker. Through teaching, Nazari had an eye-opening experience that led to a strong interest in the concept of negotiation. His interest, partnered with his exposure to such a diverse student body, led him to write on the subject.

The lack of awareness of what negotiation is has influenced how he looks at the subject. Interestingly, through his own life experiences, Dr. Nazari has drawn parallels with simple concepts and yoga practices, and the art of negotiation. Dr. Nazari has helped thousands of people worldwide elevate their personal and professional interactions by enhancing their negotiation skills.

In This Episode:

  • [00:00:46] Meet Dr Mehrad Nazari, born in Tiran, Iran, was enlisted in a compulsory military service for two years before going to London where he got his MBA. With the support of his family, he then went to the US to get a PhD.
  • [00:05:39] Many languages do not have the word “negotiation”. What is often used is “haggling”. It is important to understand the difference between these two terms.
  • [00:12:08] Dr Mehrad explains how every single type of communication has a different mindset and different skill set.
  • [00:17:30] Research has shown that givers are more intelligent than takers.
  • [00:20:20] People need to change their mindset from “haggling” to “negotiating.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Negotiation is whenever there is the expectation of exchange.
  • Set your attention on your intention. Realize that there is always an opportunity for growth in every interaction.
  • Excellent negotiators care about the success of the other party as much as they care about their own.
  • A leader that is equal centric and aware that we are all connected, can energize and inspire people towards righteous action.
  • We need to “AKT” – Awareness, Knowledge, Transformation.
