Women, Negotiating, and Dinner?

Our Speaker this month is Professor Debbie Kolb.

Debbie is Deloitte Ellen Gabriel Professor for Women and Leadership (Emerita) and Distinguished Research Fellow at the Center for Gender in Organizations at the Simmons School of Management. From[masked], Kolb was Executive Director of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. She is currently a Senior Fellow at the Program where she co-directs The Negotiations in the Workplace Project.

Professor Kolb is a very entertaining speaker and is an authority on gender issues in negotiation and leadership. She has co-authored several books on this subject. Everyday Negotiation: Navigating the Hidden Agendas of Bargaining (Jossey-Bass/John Wiley, 2003) shows women (and men) how they can become more effective in their everyday negotiations by attending to the dual requirements of the shadow negotiation – advocacy for oneself and connection with others. Originally titled, The Shadow Negotiation, Harvard Business Review named it one of the ten best business books of 2000 and it received the best book award from the International Association of Conflict Management at its meetings in Paris, 2001. Her most recent book, Her Place at the Table: A Women’s Guide to Negotiating the Five Challenges of Leadership Success (Jossey-Bass/John Wiley, 2010) describes how successful women negotiate for what they need to be effective in leadership roles at all levels of an organization.

Evening Program: Drinks at 6:00; Dinner at 7 followed by the Speaker. There are two choices for dinner: A many(!) course Italian dinner at $36.00 or a pizza, appetizer and salad dinner at $24.00. (The pizza is authentic Italian pizza!) (tip included!)

New! - In order to keep costs down (wine) and make it less confusing for the waiters we will be instituting a voucher/ticket system! Hope it works.....
