New Negotiation, Conflict & Mediation Research
The Negotiator's Desk Reference:
Publication of this new 2-volume book is a Very Big Event for negotiation (and conflict as well), given the span of topics it covers and how it brings these all up-to-date - in terms of state-of-the-research and -practice - to 2017. Check out the table of contents and ordering info here.
To be truly effective, negotiators must try to influence their counterparts not only through substantive offers, but also through engaging their attitudes and thinking patterns. This need has been analyzed (and, increasingly, taught) mostly in terms of empathy. In Social Intuition, a chapter by Andrea Schneider and Noam Ebner in The Negotiator’s Desk Reference, the authors suggest that empathy is separate from a broader construct, which they term social intuition. This skill, they content, gives a negotiator the ability to have an impact on the entire negotiation interaction. In an effort to make a difficult skill more accessible, they suggest diving its learning into three elements, structured quire differently from previous discussions: understanding first the self, then the other, and then the elements of “bridging” between these two.
