Abstract and Keywords
This chapter adopts a positive organizational scholarship lens to examine negotiation theory. Whether focusing on cognitive or social processes, the basic assumptions of most negotiation research are drawn from social exchange theory (Blau, 1964 ; Emerson, 1976 ; Homans, 1958 ; Thibaut & Kelley, 1959 ), which conceptualizes relationships as economic transactions of material or nonmaterial goods. Building on humanistic psychology (Rogers, 1959 , 1961 ), we suggest that engaging in mindful and strategic emotion management through a process of self-narration (Kopelman, Chen, & Shoshana, 2009 ) enables negotiators to develop positive regard for the self and others. Our framework suggests that negotiating mindfully will improve instrumental outcomes and well-being.
