APS Skills Seminar: Communication and Negotiation Skills Seminar for Women
Evangeline J. Downie, Department of Physics, George Washington University
In every aspect of life and career, negotiation is necessary and unavoidable. To ensure appropriate terms in negotiating a new position, or addressing challenging behavior by supervisors, peers and others, can be particularly difficult. This seminar is designed to teach you skills and techniques for handling these difficult issues. It will focus on understanding instinctual responses and developing strategies to maximize the potential for a successful outcome in negotiations. While the majority of the skills, strategies and techniques in the seminar will be applicable to all, issues particular to women in negotiation will be covered. The workshop will be delivered in a highly interactive mode: come along prepared to engage, discuss, and help yourself and your colleagues to better communication in challenging situations.
