Employee Employer Relations - Getting to Yes

We've all been there. On one side the employer wants/needs the productivity from his/her employee. On the other side the employee has needs as well but they can be vastly different from those of the employer. How do we best get to "Yes!" for both? Here Deborah Rinner the Chief Learning Officer from Tero International tackles that thorny issue and we can give you a hint.  It starts with honest communication.
