RSVP for Margaret Neale Event

Margaret Neale | Adams Distinguished Professor of Management, Stanford Graduate School of Businessl
David KellyAlmost every interaction involves negotiation, yet we often miss the cues that would allow us to make the most of these exchanges. Margaret Neale, one of the world's leading experts on negotiation, will draw on the latest advances in psychology and economics to provide new strategies for anyone shopping for a car, lobbying for a raise, or simply haggling over who takes out the trash. She'll explain how you can improve negotiation outcomes for your organization and for yourself. Inexperienced negotiators regularly leave significant value on the table — and she'll reveal how you can claim it.

Margaret A. Neale is the Adams Distinguished Professor of Management at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Prior to joining Stanford’s faculty in 1995, she taught at the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Eller School of Management of the University of Arizona. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from Northeast Louisiana University, her Master’s degrees from the Medical College of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University and her PhD in Business Administration from the University of Texas.
Professor Neale’s major research interests include bargaining and negotiation, distributed work groups, and team composition, learning, and performance. She is the author of over 70 articles on these topics and is a coauthor of four books. She is or has served on the editorial boards of the Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, International Journal of Conflict Management, and Human Resource Management Review.
