This Thursday, November 7, at 7pm I’m giving a talk on my new book, The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World.
The event, sponsored by the Bookstore in Gloucester and the Rocky Neck Cultural Center, will be at the latter’s wonderful facility at 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester.They’re just beyond the small causeway going over to the Neck. There’s public parking nearby.
Rather than read from the book, I’ll provide a multi-media glimpse of the work on which it’s based, including:
- A revealing study with psychologist Kim Leary on why many people feel anxious about negotiating;
- Interviews with great negotiators like UN trouble-shooter Lakhdar Brahimi and former Senator George Mitchell, who mediated the Good Friday Accords in Northern Ireland; and
- Surprising lessons I’ve learned from master improvisers in other realms, including trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and the visionary artists, Christo and Jeanne Claude.
I’m looking forward to seeing friends and neighbors and sharing what I’ve learned about negotiation over the years (and what still puzzles me). We’ll have wine, soft drinks, and light refreshments. I hope you can come!
