5:15 pm   Principled Negotiation: What it is and why we should try it
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn the basic approach to principled negotiation. Principled negotiation, developed at the Harvard Negotiation Project and detailed in the book Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher and William Ury, focuses on problem-solving, mutual gains and decisions based on the merits. It’s a style of negotiation where people get what they’re entitled to while still remaining decent.
