I’ll be conducting a negotiation workshop at a major New England conference for women leaders in June, offering a conflict resolution teleseminar series for the Association for Conflict Resolution beginning next week, and facilitating an April discussion for New England conflict resolution professionals.
I hope you’ll consider joining us for one or more of these events.
Here are the details — please forward them to your colleagues and friends!

This 3-part teleseminar series will introduce participants to Tammy Lenski’s 3-part framework, developed over a period of a decade, for getting conflict unstuck using narratives that transform instead of stagnate conflict. The framework can be used in mediation settings, conflict coaching, and training sessions and is the subject of her forthcoming book.

Part 2: Creating a rewrite that can bring success and relief
Part 3: Bringing the rewrite to life

What words do you use to tell people about your work? Do they really get it? Is our own language working against us?
We think it’s time for new and better terms.
Please join us for a robust conversation, led by longtime practitioner and innovator Tammy Lenski, about the labels and language we use. Help us explore and consider words that can make our work both understandable and relevant to the people we want to help.

What: Workshop for women from throughout New England

Confronting and negotiating powerfully don’t damage relationships at work and home – they strengthen them. How it’s done is what makes the difference between a great outcome and one that leaves you out in the cold. This workshop will teach you simple yet powerful negotiating habits that increase your persuasiveness, help you keep your balance in difficult moments, and build stronger bonds. Key takeaways from this session:
- Which three key habits of mind translate into the most successful negotiations at work and home.
- How to increase your negotiation confidence and success easily and gradually.
- How to be persuasive and powerful without playing negotiation “games” that irritate.
