Executive Lecture Series Speaker recommends 'honest' negotiations By JOANNE SCHULTHIES Staff writer of The Signpost Students attending the Executive Lecture Thursday learned how to negotiate from Duane Ashmead, Weber State graduate and President of the World-Wide Albion Laboratories. The first step, he said, is to be prepared to understand the organization, and have most of the questions answered before beginning the negotiation process. "Work on the other side's case," he said. Both sides of the negotiation have value, so treat them as such. Learn to think and talk at the same time. "He that wants the most gets the least," Ashmead said. Too often, people give up everything to get it all, and in the end they lose it all. "Keep your word no matter what," he said. "A contract is not worth any more than you are worth." He said a title of trust is earned. You can always break a contract, but not your word. ENGINEER (continued from page 2) will be the main provider for this project.

One student asked him his thought of President Bush's recent trip to Japan for trade negotiations. Ashmead said that he is not impressed with trade missions because so often nothing really gets accomplished. "President Bush went unprepared, not really understanding the Japanese people," he said.
