Win-win cultivates an abundance mentality: we can find options that will be acceptable for everyone. There is always enough for everyone.
Win-lose cultivates a scarcity mentality: my way is the only acceptable way. There’s only so much, so I’d better get mine first. (7 habits of highly effective people)
