    Register for this FREE virtual event: 

    Most people feel nervous when called to negotiate a big deal like buying a car or determining the salary of a new job. Every day, however, we’re forging deals from determining bedtimes for our children to coping with a noisy neighbor that engage the same principles of negotiation.

    This seminar helps you move away from having to choose between domination or submission and the anxiety that often comes when in conflict. In this workshop, learn the five conflict styles and the way they impact your negotiation. Understand the seven elements of successful negotiation, the importance of careful preparation and how to expand the range of possible satisfactory outcomes. With these tools, you’ll be ready to produce more durable agreements that both meet your interests and honor your relationships.

    Attend the workshop to meet the following goals:

    Gain confidence and decrease anxiety when approaching any negotiation situation

    Forge more durable and lasting agreements

    Achieve more control in negotiations regardless of power imbalance

    Here are the outcomes you'll achieve when you attend:

    Understand the Five Conflict Styles, how to effectively use each, and when they might be an obstacle to agreement

    Discover the Seven Elements for Successful Negotiation and how to use them to prepare for any negotiation situation

    Learn tools to generate multiple options to increase your ability to find a mutually satisfying agreement

    Find out how to compare other possible alternatives to those available in your negotiation to allow you to select the choice that works best for you

    The Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line

    Join the Society of Women Environmental Professionals, Massachusetts Chapter (SWEP-MA) for this online event with Linda Cohen.

    What is the impact of kindness? In this highly interactive program, Cohen shares how kindness in the workplace, improves employee morale, elevates workplace culture, and reduces burnout. The size of the kindness action doesn't matter. There is often an unexpected ripple effect and giving and receiving are often experienced differently. According to research from the University of California Riverside, 40% of our happiness is determined by intentional actions, not by genes (50%) or circumstances (10%). Cohen will encourage participation that will help attendees share ways to cultivate a strong culture of kindness. She will also share timely examples. This program will give your participants a variety of new kindness ideas and resources to implement immediately.

    Linda Cohen is The Kindness Catalyst, a speaker, consultant and author of a new book, The Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line. For more information check her website

    The presentation will be 5-6 PM, EST, with optional networking from 6-6:30 PM,EST.

    Co-sponsored with the Connecticut Society for Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP-CT) and the Northeast Energy and Commerce Association (NECA).
