Negotiating for the Win

Close out the year with a bang at our November workshop on negotiations. This month we have a special format and advance prep-work. Seating is limited - first come, first seated. We'll begin our first exercise at 9:00a as attendees arrive. The speaker will begin promptly at 9:30a.

Led by Dr. Zoe Barsness, a negotiations expert at the University of Washington, November's Lean In Seattle session will focus on negotiations in three categories: work (new jobs and promotions); sales and acquisitions; and third-party/vendor relationships. 

Like every Lean In Seattle event, our content will be rich with hands-on exercises and actionable insights attendees can put into practice immediately. 

Join Dr. Zoe Barsness, a professor at UW, whose research focuses on negotiation, organizational structure (individuals and groups), remote/alternative work environments, conflict management, team dynamics and human resource management. She's served as a consultant to several hospitals, the constructuion industry, local city governments and the State of Texas. She has received research grants from the State of Texas, U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Center for International Business Studies at Texas A&M University, an the University of Washington, Tacoma. Prior to graduate school, she worked in the private sector in marketing and product development for a start-up software company and in management consulting.
