Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Douglas Noll, preeminent lawyer and Professional Mediator teaches negotiation skills through his new online Negotiation Mastery for the Legal Pro, a California MCLE approved continuing education course for lawyers. Through his course Noll teaches the implications and dynamics of power in negotiations. “I teach how to manage negotiations when there is an imbalance of power. As an example, a recent article in the New York Times identified diplomats for the U.N. as ‘heavy drinkers’ and drew the correlation between feeling powerless and self- medicating with alcohol. It is true that without understanding and learning the dynamics of negotiation, and being in a subordinate position of power, feelings of hopelessness arise. I teach business leaders and lawyers how to manage power struggles and how to conquer those through skills and strategies,” Noll explains.
Doug Noll is a keynote speaker hired by organizations, businesses and civic groups for his talk “Brains, Biases and Decision-making”. This keynote address covers evolutionary biology, cognitive neuro-psychology, and behavioral economics, with common experience to show how leaders, managers, politicians and diplomats tend to make bad decisions when faced with uncertainty, ambiguity, and risk—costing lost revenue, and time.
