Negotiation Advisory

My negotiation advisory is based on ideas developed at the Program on Negotiation - a consortium program of Harvard, MIT, and Tufts and a pioneer in interdisciplinary thinking on negotiation strategy since 1983 - as well as our broad industry and geographic experience.

I do one-on-one and small group advisory. I can help you more effectively prepare for - and execute - a specific deal, opportunity, or challenge in front of you. I can help you overcome tension - or outright conflict - with a key relationship. I can help you navigate restructurings and significant change.


Consider me your thought-partner.
