In the public sector she has also provided training for the New England Organ Bank, the Singapore Supreme Court, the Obama White House, and theologians struggling with disagreement over the nature of truth and God.

Sheila has spent the last fifteen years with the Harvard Negotiation Project, developing negotiation theory and practice. She specializes in particularly difficult negotiations – where emotions run high and relationships become strained. Sheila is co-author of the New York Times Business Bestseller, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most (Penguin 2000).

One of the side benefits of writing Difficult Conversations has been the chance to appear on shows as diverse as Oprah and the G. Gordon Liddy show, NPR’s Diane Rehms Show, Fox News, and CNBC’s Power Lunch. Sheila is a graduate of Occidental College in Los Angeles, and Harvard Law School. She is schooled in negotiation daily by her three children.

About

This ground-breaking conference was started in 2008 as the first Harvard-wide conference organized by students on the topic of negotiations. Since then the conference continues to take an innovative and practical look at issues that are either under-studied or otherwise that are trends shaping the field of negotiations. By combining discussion on such issues with leading scholars and practitioners from business, law, government and academia, this event provides a platform for those looking to significantly enhance their intellectual foundation and practical skills.
