“Hardball Negotiating Tactics: Why They Work & How They Can Fail So Badly”
Sponsor
CISCDR Distinguished Visitor Lecture
presented by the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Conflict & Dispute Resolution
SEP 19, 2007
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
How do hardball negotiating tactics affect the people, the discussion, and the results of a negotiation? Mr. Factor will look at this topic from a range of reason-based and emotion-based perspectives, including:

  • disarming knowledge seeking inquiries
  • persuasive emotion-based tactics
  • effective tactics based on cognitive psychology research
  • humanistic and anecdotal moments of transformational impact
  • greater understanding through research in neuroscience.
