Effective Negotiation Strategies

Presented by Roel Snieder

Negotiation is an integral part of professional life. Negotiating a job contract is one of the first things we do (hopefully) when leaving school. While in graduate school, or on the job, numerous occasions arise where we need to negotiate, and it is important that we can stand up for our interest by effective negotiation. Yet many of us are not comfortable negotiating, or don't know how to negotiate. In this workshop we explore internal barriers we may face to enter a negotiation. We will cover the basics of negotiation, which involve knowing what you want or need, and conversation methods that encourage the other party to move towards your needs while maintaining a positive dialogue. Lastly, we discuss simple practices that help you become more comfortable with negotiation.

This workshop will be led by Roel Snieder. Roel Snieder is Professor of Professional Development Education at the Colorado School of Mines, as well as a licensed Freedom Coach. As a scientist, he worked for many years with people who tend to live in their head, relying on their analytical thinking. Roel has personally experienced the process of transformation to the fullness of living from the head and from the heart. Over the years he has counseled many people in this process and developed and taught classes on Wellness and on Science and Spirituality at Mines. Roel wrote a book on living a harmonious and fulfilling life for scientists and engineers, The Joy of Science: Seven Principles for Scientists Seeking Happiness, Harmony, and Success. He received the Beno Gutenberg Medal for his research from the European Seismological Society. He received the Outstanding Educator Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and the Ange Melagro Prize of the McBride Honors Program at the Colorado School of Mines for his outstanding class Science and Spirituality.

Please register in advance. Lunch will be provided for preregistered attendees.
