Today’s workplace requires more collaboration than ever before. Honing effective communication skills is essential for success – and well-being – throughout your career. Based on principles developed at the Harvard Negotiation Project by the authors of the bestseller Getting to Yes, this one-day Collaborative Communication Workshop is designed to help graduate students and faculty participants

  • Influence people effectively, even when you don’t have direct authority
  • Create buy-in for your ideas, even when you do have direct authority
  • Ask for what you need – or say no – in a way that does not damage relationships
  • Respond to challenges, threats, outbursts, and other difficult behaviors
  • Identify and articulate your value effectively
  • Prepare strategically for potentially difficult conversations
  • Generate creative agreements in order to find “win-win” solutions

We ask that participants commit to attending both halves of the workshop

and to reading Getting to Yes ahead of time (book will be provided).
