Negotiating the Nonnegotiable: Powerful Tools for Dealing with Conflict at Work, in the Home, and in the world Around us
Named one of the top 15 professors at Harvard University, Daniel L. Shapiro, Ph.D., is founder and director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program, affiliate faculty at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, and associate professor in psychology at Harvard Medical School. From advising leaders of war-torn countries to working with senior business executives and families in crisis, he has helped countless organizations and individuals solve the problems that divide us. Drawing on these experiences and his years of research at Harvard, he has developed a wealth of powerful approaches to amplify influence and leadership in business, in government, and in life.
Dr. Shapiro has launched successful conflict resolution initiatives in the Middle East, Europe, and East Asia, and for three years chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Conflict Resolution. Through non-profit funding, he developed a conflict management program that now has reached more than one million people across more than twenty countries.
He has published extensively in the field of conflict resolution, and is coauthor of the negotiation classic Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate and author of the new book Negotiating the Nonnegotiable, which Matthew Bishop of the Economist Group called, “Quite simply, the best book I have ever read on negotiating in situations of extreme conflict.” Dr. Shapiro has contributed to The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Time Magazine, and other popular publications, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the American Psychological Association's Early Career Award and the Cloke-Millen Peacemaker of the Year award.
