What is the impact of culture on our lives? Human beings are living under the terms of collaboration. If it were the other way around, we wouldn’t have the world we see and experience today. The only thing that differentiates us is our calibre. Growing up with the value of antagonism makes it impossible to become a defensive car driver or a fair contractor doing a job. Principled negotiation originates from a series of social interactions we experience during our growing up and forges us into better individuals.
In fewer words, the people we consort with at school are the people we will be dealing with later in life. Is it the environment that forges us or our DNA? Maybe it’s a fight between both, but trying to improve it’s only going to benefit us all. When true collaboration happens, people flourish.
