The main lesson of this Hollywood classic is that Art of negotiation that Corleone practices. First, he examines the other party’s strengths and weaknesses to get useful information in negotiations, and then the godfather just sits down to listen and waits for the other to make his best offer. The key to successful negotiations is having confidence and knowing the deal. Another important point is that “it’s not personal, it’s just business.” This phrase from Michael Corleone teaches that when there is an agreement, emotions and feelings have no place.
