Negotiation in relationships can be tough. But did you know there is a way to negotiate so you can get everything you want and get the other person to like it? It doesn’t have to be difficult! Do you consider yourself an avoider of conflict? Pushing off those difficult conversations with your friend or your partner because you don’t want to cause a drift in your relationship.
Rebecca Zung believes not only is it important to face these conflicts head-on, but also know how to negotiate your way into getting what you want and actually get the other person to like it. She is a top attorney and narcissist negotiation expert, a bestselling author, and keynote speaker. Outside of her successful law practice, she empowers millions with YouTube videos about how to negotiate in your relationships. She shares how we can become better negotiators and live our best lives, especially since negotiating doesn’t always include multiple people – we negotiate with ourselves all day!
She found her focus on narcissists and narcissism through her law practice – she’s a divorce attorney with a high-profile practice. But it was really her experiences in her personal life with a family member and a business partner that someone suggested might “covert narcissists.” After reading The Covert, Passive Aggressive Narcissist by Debbie Mizra and seeing so much of her experience reflected in it, she realized her skills in negotiating could be applied to this personality type. Her platform started in 2019 with videos on the topic, and she ultimately wants to show viewers that the worst things in our lives can become the greatest gifts and the greatest lessons.
Plus, we talked about how the stigma around getting divorced has been broken in the last decade. The rate of gray divorces has risen recently, showing that more people aren’t settling for unhappiness, and realize that your ability to change and find joy has no expiration date.
