The University Libraries lie at the heart of the work of Carnegie Mellon University. Just as Andrew Carnegie defined the library of the twentieth century through his philanthropy, the university that bears his name will define the library of the future. Operating as a trusted and essential academic partner, building community, and transforming scholarly communication and access, the University Libraries strengthens the work of our academic community to ensure its transformative impact on our campus and beyond.

As the center of the academic enterprise, the University Libraries uphold the values of the university through a commitment to excellence in three core areas: Expertise, Services, and Collections.

Negotiation and Conflict Management

Presented by Taya Cohen, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Theory

Date: Oct 16, 2018 at 11:30am-1:30pm
Location: Dowd Room, 2nd Floor CUC
RSVP here by Oct 15, 2018

We negotiate daily in a variety of contexts: business, family, and social.  Negotiations serve several purposes: (1) establishing new or renewing old relationships; (2) changing behaviors and expectations; and (3) resolving conflict and disputes. How effectively we negotiate exerts important effects on the quality of life we live and how successful we are at work. Although negotiations are a ubiquitous part of our everyday lives, many of us know little about the strategy and psychology of effective negotiations. Why do we sometimes get our way, while other times we walk away feeling frustrated by our inability to achieve the agreement we desire? This workshop uses an interactive approach to cover several key principals for successful negotiation and conflict management.

A light lunch will be provided. 


Presented by Brandy Aven, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Theory.
