View Details

The program will begin with a 45-minute workshop lead by Margaret Neale, Professor, Emerita at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, and co-author of Getting (More of) What You Want: How the Secrets of Economics and Psychology Can Help You Negotiate Anything, in Business and in Life.

Professor Margaret Neale will explore the challenges we face when negotiating, and share how women in particular can leverage their problem-solving strengths. Attendees will learn actionable strategies designed to help get (more of) what they want from their negotiations. Topics covered will include (1) how expectations influence our outcomes and the outcomes of our counterparts, (2) the power of justifications to influence, and (3) the importance of negotiating at the package, rather than the issue, level.

At the conclusion of the workshop, a networking reception will take place outside on the North Palomino Plaza.

This event is not limited to women. All conference attendees interested in supporting and learning more about women’s leadership are encouraged to attend.
