Contact: Andre Bisasor

How do we overcome judgment bias in decision-making for situations of extreme pressure and high-stakes? Join us as we explore these issues to discover how identity and high-stakes can impact negotiations; to learn how to negotiate with leaders from different backgrounds as a key skill for the 21st century; and to address concerns about how to overcome bias in negotiations without damaging relationships in the process.
