This resource serves to educate lawyers and business professionals on how to draft the many types of "boilerplate" provisions, a legal term that refers to the standardized, one-size-fits-all provisions of a contract. Each chapter tackles one of 20 provisions and analyzes why it is important, the key legal and business issues raised, and how to draft the provision to suit a particular transaction. Such analysis not only helps readers better understand how to draft these provisions in their contracts, but also helps them better understand the other party's process.

Verhandeln? Bitte mit Gefühl! Noch immer herrscht der weitverbreitete Irrglaube, Verhandlungen müssten möglichst rational geführt, Emotionen weitestgehend ausgeklammert werden. Roger Fisher (Mitautor des Bestsellers "Das Harvard-Konzept") und Daniel Shapiro (Autor von "Verhandeln. Die neue Erfolgsmethode aus Harvard") zeigen, dass diese Herangehensweise nicht nur impraktikabel, sondern auch wenig Erfolg versprechend ist. Denn der Mensch ist ein emotionales Wesen und egal ob Freude, Wut oder Angst: Gefühle sind fester Bestandteil unseres Denkens und Handelns, die auch in sachlichen Verhandlungen nicht abgeschaltet werden können. Fisher und Shapiro zeigen, dass sich Emotionen sogar positiv auf das Verhandlungsergebnis auswirken: Wer die Bedeutung und Anzeichen der wichtigsten emotionalen Grundbedürfnisse erkennt, kann sie gezielt aktivieren und ansprechen und dadurch den Verhandlungsverlauf positiv beeinflussen.
