I stumbled upon this site, www.warholian.com,  through one of my FB friends. Among the many messages in this picture, lies one that can be related to negotiation.

As I’ve mentioned before, negotiation outcomes are closely tied to our relationship with the other party and to our ability to empathize with them.  If we restrict ourselves to a narrow circle of relationships with people just like ourselves, we deny ourselves the opportunity to broaden our perspectives.  When it comes time to sit down at the negotiating table,  an artist’s tendency to “mix with all classes of society” should provide an advantage in being able to relate to a broad spectrum of people.
