Negotiation Happens In Everyday Spaces

There are many ways we can improve the effectiveness of how we negotiate, communicate and manage conflict. It is lifework because we are never in the exact same situation twice. We continue to change over time through our different experiences and learning. We face different issues and challenges that we need to manage. We interact with different people at different times and the circumstances bringing us together are not the same. Ideally, we reflect and learn from each of these interactions and improve who we are and what we bring to our relationships in the process.

We offer different insights and opportunities for improvement through the variety of services offered by Beth Fisher-Yoshida, to be enriched by her commentary, and to gain more learning through resources based on her research, practice, and work with her colleagues.

Please enjoy, glean what you will, and feel free to reach out and chat.

Negotiate Anything Podcast on LinkedIn Understanding Values and Identity: Embracing Nuances in Negotiations with Beth Fisher-Yoshida

I am in conversation with host Kwame Christian about negotiation, inclusion, and taking care of yourself during your negotiation. We touch on a variety of topics including creating space for dialogue and being better prepared to have difficult conversations.

Leadership Beyond Borders

Culture plays a role in all of our communication, including how we negotiate. Our perceptions of ourselves and others and their perceptions of us based on our cultural orientations can get in the way of how effectively we negotiate. And leaders have a particularly strong influence by how they set the tone. Please have a listen to my conversation with Kimberli J. Lewis on the topic.

Resilience Unraveled

Who can’t use a little more resilience to weather their storms? Please have a listen to my conversation with Dr. Russell Thackeray on the topic.
