"CREATORS Negotiate" book online presentation announcement  

Obviously, any communication situation is unique in a way that the number and quality of combinations of human interactions and its components are unframeable and limitless, - many of which has become challenged under the influence of overall disruption. 

As far as there’s no technology that may provide a gradually sought after, always original communicational solution for constantly variable conditions, - the role of social creativity comes into play. 

Fortunately for the socially aware individuals and conscious leaders, under extreme situations latent conflicts of interests become more transparent naturally, so that some values, paradigms and stereotypes are being reconsidered drastically, therefore allowing great and positive opportunities, emerge from willingness and ability to transform  superficially “negative” situations into commonly beneficial communicational solutions.  

With this idea in mind and with respect to the current situation, Dr. Julia Radanova will host “Creators Negotiate” book presentation in the form of an online, interactive interview with its author Ilya Chernobay. They will walk you through the book's idea, structure and origination, with some coffee breaks in turning points and stories behind them. We will shortly pay due respect to those, who unintentionally  "contributed" to the process the most, then we will recollect a few facts along with outstanding leaders in history, related to the main topic, that worked out as building blocks for the authors' signature negotiating strategy in multilateral mitigation, as well as other universal approaches, that constitute the book itself. 

We will also quickly touch the ground of some author’s challenges, that has led him to make a decision of writing “Creators negotiate” back 7 years ago and "pursued" him to actually make it reality, while simultaneously building mental bridges into even more challenging and exciting future for those who think, create and care. 

Digital copies of the book has been licensed and distributed through: Amazon Kobo & Ridero.

Cross-cultural dimension: Bulgaria (from "Creators negotiate") 

"Apart from any other negotiating culture, although within Eastern European department, stands out Bulgarian communication tradition. As one friend of mine poetically put it, it is easier to make a deal with an alien, than Bulgarian. Well, of course, given that you are dealing with mind reader, it might be challenging, especially, if he or she is infected by low self-esteem complex (which is absolutely groundless), burdened with “the few, the proud, the marines” attitude. I personally can be biased as obligated to Bulgaria some of my happiest times, anyway, in general, I have never met people, that are more kind, wise and talented, as they are. 

Moreover, besides eye-contact, which is predominantly preached by westerners, Bulgarians used to establish heart-contact, so they are able (and prone) to make decisions both on mental and intuitive levels, meaning that, if any of these sensors fail to get their “dobre”, - a deal will most likely not get through, or will be considered as non-grata and, therefore, overpriced. 

Another absolutely astonishing feature of Bulgarian negotiating style is “no “no” policy”, - as I called it. It turned out lately, that the reason for this communication trick is to allow themselves to keep their options open, instead of cutting off potential opportunities by saying direct “no” and turning partner into counter party. Normally, no business decision is made apart from face-to-face conversation. Handshakes with women is a norma and common European “duty”."
