NEUVOTTELUVALTA
Miten tulen huippuneuvottelijaksi?
Negotiation Power
Negotiation Power - how to become a master negotiator?

The leading Finnish newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, used the negotiation framework developed in the book to rate the leading Finnish politicians in an article "Pekkarinen ranked highest among top politicians for negotiating skills" published in the international edition on March 27, 2008. The authors and the book were widely quoted in the article, including:

- Miettinen sees former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as a "truly tough" negotiator. "He took power from the Conservatives and brought his country into the Iraq war even against the will of his own country. And he survived it without being destroyed", Miettinen says. Torkki's favourite is former president Martti Ahtisaari. "He shows the courage of an experienced negotiator. He emphasises toughness. He needs to be able to say that this is the limit. When he steps into a room, his position comes through in a strong manner", Torkki says.
