Most people conceive of power in terms of dominance, where one either has it or does not. But in the skillful hands of Professor Sheila Heen (co-author of Difficult Conversations) and Professor Rachel Viscomi (Director of the Negotiation and Mediation Clinic), you’ll learn to understand power as a more fluid concept that is context dependent. This workshop will focus on everyday scenarios that challenge a zero-sum understanding of power and teach how to identify the predictable mistakes and blind spots that often impede us when navigating relationships – both personal and professional. You’ll walk away with a set of strategies for maintaining and wielding your own power as you maneuver through the often opaque terrain of daily life. Lunch will be provided.

Limited space, so please REGISTER in advance. Registered attendees will receive a free copy of the newly published and significantly revised 3rd edition of Difficult Conversations This event is for HLS students only.
