Football (or soccer in American) is one of the most popular sports in the world. Every four years, all eyes are glued to TV screen at home, watching their favourite world-class teams and players play. World Cup is undoubtedly the most entertaining tournament in the history of sports and football!

But what we do not know is that, somehow, football has ‘a positive correlation with the oil and gas industry‘. Yes, believe it or not, it is true!

Deep in our hearts, we want to be like “them“. We want to be like “that person” who keeps “winning” the deal. Someone who manages to get the job done in any negotiation, be it purchasing a new car at a gallery or bargaining used items at Mudah.my[1] site. It is a well-known fact that negotiation is the key to success. We even have to negotiate with our children on many occasions! That shows how important the negotiation skill in our life.

In reality – negotiation is not an easy feat. I bet that even a seasoned negotiator would not know whether they can achieve a desirable result before entering the battle-field. Leaders often disguise their fear when negotiating despite their stature and position. There is no doubt that a winning-negotiator can be an important asset for most organisations, especially in the era of economic turbulence. Only the best shall win and survive. We need to get everything at a bargain! Even millionaires do need the best deal, right?
