Harvard Law School Seminar on Negotiation

By David Shaiken

In June, I attended a seminar on negotiation at the Harvard Law School Program On Negotiation. It was the best seminar I’ve ever attended. Yes, we did some Getting to Yes, but I also learned a superb way to prepare and stay organized for the most important issues. Most important, I learned how to keep discussions on track for creating value, along with advanced tools for dealing with difficult situations. I met (and negotiated with) attendees from all over the world, which was a special treat. A shout out to Professor Robert Bordone for an inspiring and powerful 2-day course. I’ll be back for more in future years! Obviously, this program has my highest recommendation.
