This is a show for women about women and Barbara Blackstone will take us into tricky territory--the importance of negotiation, especially for women. After years of experience in public, private, non-profit, and academic settings, Barbara Blackstone created Blackstone Associates to focus on teaching women to speak up for themselves, overcome hidden obstacles, negotiate for their own needs and wants, and handle conflicts with confidence. A workplace pioneer, Barbara was one of the "first" women to hold numerous high positions she was given in her field, so she knows what it is like to work in environments where gender matters. She has made many of the mistakes that currently hold women back from negotiating for themselves. Because women are not generally taught to negotiate, we will go deep into the very basics of negotiation and why women have missed out on this crucial training. 

Barbara is the former Director of the Office of Dispute Resolution for the State of Minnesota and currently is an adjunct instructor of negotiation and conflict management for Marylhurst University in Oregon. Blackstone holds a master’s degree in Urban Studies from Roosevelt University in Chicago. Join me and my friend Barbara Blackstone and discover that you might be better at negotiating than most people think. (Pre-recorded)
