Elimination of Bias: The Impact of Culture on Negotiation and Mediation

Nina Meierding examines how culture affects the way information is processed, communication and negotiation are experienced, power is exercised and understood, risks are evaluated and decisions and agreements are reached. Ms. Meierding will explain how to move beyond traditional cultural biases, and will then discuss practical techniques for professionals to address these dynamics in effective and creative ways. 

Schedule times listed below are for the live seminar. Times for replays may differ due to varied start times. Please refer to the DATES/LOCATION tab for individual replay start times.

REGISTRATION & CHECK-IN

1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Culture and Communication
Miscommunication often occurs from “how” we communicate rather than “what” we communicate. From cross-talking to interrupting, from rapport apologies to acknowledgment of blame, from direct speech to hedging, from ritual opposition to interestbased bargaining, this humorous and informationpacked training provides specific skills for better communication. Whether these skills are used in mediations or negotiations, you will leave with a better understanding of what causes many of the culture-related misunderstandings in communication styles as well as strategies for overcoming them.
