Last week, Taylor Swift wrote an open letter to Apple and CEO Tim Cook in which she complained about the company's decision not to pay artists during the three month free-trial period of Apple Music. By also threatening to withhold from them her hot new "1989" album, the new reigning Queen of Pop also gave a crash course in Negotiation 101.
Many of us could use some help in that department. A new survey from staffing firm Robert Half revealed that although 89 percent of workers believe they deserve a raise, only 54 percent plan on asking their employer for one this year.

These biases that lead to disparate treatment are often present at a subconscious level. Jacqueline will share her latest on-going research on ways to address end of life healthcare disparities through conflict engagement processes such as World Café Dialogues, some of the challenges, and what can you do to improve your and your loved ones quality of end of life care.

Some people love negotiation Some people loathe it. Some people simply do it. But few people have a clearly defined strategy when they walk into a negotiation. They are simply there to show up, get it over with, and hopefully win the deal.

If you want to gain the upper hand at negotiation, there is an art and science.
1. Look like a million bucks.
