New Book: The Palgrave Handbook of Cross-Cultural Business Negotiation

I’m very excited to share that my book, co-edited with friend and colleague Prof. Ayub Khan, has been published.

The Palgrave Handbook of Cross-Cultural Business Negotiation goes beyond ‘negotiation with a business twist.’ After covering the basics, the book focuses on the realities of contemporary international business, in which cross-cultural negotiation has become the norm rather than the exception, and in which…

Getting to Yes Exercise: A Trisolan Map

Once you have finished reading the assigned material from Getting to Yes, conduct the 'A Trisolan Map' exercise.

This exercise is designed to help you make the jump from understanding the innovative method you have learned to actually applying it - before you engage in negotiation simulations or in any real-life negotiations you have going on in your life right now.

Build your negotiation counterpart a bridge to your side through use of Social Intuition

We’ve long known that to be a successful negotiator , it isn't enough to come up with a good offer. Great negotiators are able to engage their counterpart’s attitudes, emotions, and thinking patterns. Some of this has been captured in discussions of ‘empathy’ and ‘emotional intelligence,’ but much of it remains ineffable. Yup - it's vague enough, to require a vague word to describe it.…

In Rod We Trust: Politics, Talking Sticks, and the Ongoing Crisis in Conflict Resolution

When I heard the reports last week of senators, meeting in a bipartisan effort to open the government, using a talking stick, my first thought was ‘that’s cute’. My second response was a sense of disquiet, which I didn’t know to pin down. It has nothing to do with the method itself – I’ve used talking objects myself; in fact, I’ve used them in working…

Negotiating via Text Messaging

We all negotiate via text messaging.

Perhaps, for some, this only occurs on the fringes of negotiation: a request to move the venue of a meeting, or to correct a typo on a contract. Others may recognize that they have negotiated the sale of a car or a house, elements of a job offer, or even professional negotiations through this medium. Certainly, many of the family-and-friends -related interactions that texts on negotiations use as examples are now conducted via text.

Seeking Pasta Wars Translations!

Many of you have participated in the Pasta Wars simulation, and I've shared it, in the past, on ADRHub. Some of you have been kind enough to write (on the Hub, or privately) of your own work with the the simulation. So, I turn to you as I seek to make the simulation accessible by a wider group of educators and trainers.

I know many people have used this Prisoners Dilemma simulation-game in different…
