Can a magician’s secrets help you at the negotiation table? Can a mediator’s emotional intelligence be taught? David Ross, Esq., a senior mediator at JAMS and adjunct professor at Columbia Law School, and Ryan Oakes, an award-winning magician and mentalist, team up to teach you new skills and strategies that can take your negotiation practice to the next level. The science and art of applying mindfulness, shaping perceptions, building rapport, detecting lies, handling hardball tactics, reading groups of people, and using social proof are just few of the topics explored and explained by two experts in their respective crafts — mediation and magic. Expect the unexpected in this unconventional workshop, but rest assured you will learn practical tips on how to be a more persuasive negotiator.
