Dr. Fisher-Yoshida takes a systematic approach to working on both simple and complex issues with multiple stakehodlers pertaining to all phases of the negotiation process. She has more than 25 years’ experience in working with clients, students, and workshop participants on negotiation. Beth will speak from a global perspective on relational aspects of negotiation and the role communication plays in building these relationships.
How important is your Emotional IQ when you’re a woman negotiating? You don’t want to lose your temper, burst into tears, or sink into a funk while negotiating, but what about positive emotions? Can a positive, enthusiastic or calm attitude have a favorable impact on your negotiation? Coach and author, Ora Shtul discusses many common assumptions about women and negotiating with a special focus on the impact of emotions on the outcome of a negotiation.
Certain fields (aerospace, professional sports, high-tech, the financial sector) remain dominated by men at the top—and often in the trenches too. Because senior leadership tends to be largely male, and these men perpetuate a stereotype of the masculine-identified qualities required to become leaders (not to mention promoting people who most closely resemble themselves), cracking the door open in these fields has continued to be tough. Inc. Magazine’s, Kimberly Weisul, will lead a panel that discusses the particular challenges women face in a male-dominated workplace and introduces some of the strategies women find helpful as they try to stay afloat—and keep swimming.
Managing professionals from a different generation, whether they’re decades younger or significantly older and more experienced, requires sophisticated negotiating skills and a nuanced understanding of generational differences. Linda will lead a panel that aims to examine the differences between generations, delineate how negative stereotypes prevent mutual understanding, and identify ways to find common ground and make the most of each group’s strengths. This highly topical session will help you gain insight into your colleagues and enhance your skills in leading, inspiring, and collaborating across the ages.

Dr. Racioppi, using her 25 years of experience helping leading organizations attract, retain and develop female talent, will pinpoint three proven strategies for bolstering a woman’s career. First, she’ll share insights on how and why women need to assess and, as needed, evolve their view of themselves. Second, Dr. Racioppi will highlight the way to build effective networks…ones that are defined by success, not numbers. Then, based on her independent research, she will discuss how women can develop honest mentoring relationships that provide them with needed feedback, often missing in their interactions with their managers.
This “triple header” of proven strategies will result in participants leaving the session with actionable approaches for achieving their career goals, for increasing their contributions to their companies and for improving their ability to negotiate for themselves and for their organizations.
