Conflict Resolution 2.0: Leveraging the Hidden Power of Emotions

If there’s a single word to describe the divorce process, it may well be this:  emotional.  Emotions often get in the way of agreement–whether in mediating a divorce, resolving a management dispute, or getting your kids to bed.  But emotions also can be surprisingly helpful.  Join this workshop to discover how to use emotions to turn a disagreement — big or small, professional or personal — into an opportunity for mutual gain.  Internationally renowned negotiation expert Dr. Daniel Shapiro will present a powerful, proven framework he co-developed to address the emotional dimensions of negotiation and mediation, and difficult conversations of all kinds.  And he’ll share concrete tools and tips that you can apply right away to enhance your effectiveness and reach greater levels of success, individually and as a team.

Dan Shapiro is an energizing presenter who draws on a variety of teaching methods that make for a lively, engaging learning experience that can substantially enhance your practice.

About Dan: www.danshapiroglobal.com

  • BA, John Hopkins; PhD, UMass, Amherst
  • Founder and Director, Harvard International Negotiation Program
  • Associate Professor of Psychology, Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital
  • Affiliate faculty, Program on Negotiation

Dr. Shapiro teaches a highly evaluated course on negotiation at Harvard College, instructs psychology interns at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital, and leads executive education sessions at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, Harvard Kennedy School, and Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital. He also has served on the faculty at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, and at the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Named by the Harvard Crimson as one of Harvard’s top 15 professors, Dr. Shapiro specializes in practice-based research–building theory and testing it in real-world contexts. He has launched successful conflict resolution initiatives in the Middle East, Europe, and East Asia, and for three years chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Conflict Resolution. Focusing extensively on the emotional and identity-based dimensions of negotiation and conflict resolution, Dr. Shapiro led the initiative to create the world’s first Global Curriculum on Conflict Management for senior policymakers and developed a conflict management curriculum that now reaches one million youth across more than 20 countries. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the American Psychological Association’s Early Career Award and the Cloke-Millen Peacemaker of the Year Award.  His greatest learning, he says, has come from negotiating with three of the world’s toughest bargainers:  his three young boys.
