Seminar Focus:Making Women Better Negotiators

Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 00:00

How Do Women Negotiate Effectively? Skills & Strategies for Success is the title of a CLE seminar planned by the New York City Bar Association.

The program will take place on Tuesday, July 31 from 9 a.m. to noon at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

Using interactive discussions and humor, this program, based on characteristics of effective negotiators, will introduce participants to the perceived differences between men and women in communicative preferences, attitudes towards conflict, negotiating styles and ways of processing information. The program, led by highly effective negotiators and mediators, will provide practical tips on how to prepare for negotiation and identify the most important aspects of persuading someone else to agree. It will also expose gender-specific behaviors that undermine power in negotiation and offer advice on equalizing perceived power imbalances.

The program co-chairs are Pamela R. Esterman, Sive, Paget & Riesel, and Stephanie Morse-Shamosh, program manager, Forum for Alternate Issue Resolution, UBS Financial Services, Inc.
