Guest Speaker Series: Rachel Kroll – Negotiation Excercise

A little about the workshop:

Leaders in any field must be able to manage differences, build relationships, and negotiate effectively. In this highly interactive workshop, students will have the opportunity to practice these skills in a low risk environment through lecture, a “real life” negotiation, and group discussions. Together, we will explore the most effective ways to assert interests, understand others’ perspectives, and solve problems creatively. My approach to negotiation is broad and the goal of the workshop is to teach skills that will be applicable immediately–in negotiations with friends, teachers, coworkers and parents–as well as future careers.
