The 2018 Chris Beecroft Lecture with Andrea Schneider

The 2018 Chris Beecroft Lecture


Professor Andrea Schneider


"Gender and Negotiation:  What About the Guys?"

Do men and women typically negotiate differently? Much research on the topic essentially suggests women should negotiate more assertively or more like men. However, more recent work shows that men who engage in aggressive or bullying behavior in negotiation are often ineffective.  In addition, while research often celebrates women's perceived advantage in terms of empathy or trustworthiness, the same research has not yet been used to provide more specific advice to men on how to do better in negotiation.  This talk will both discuss the general differences between behaviors labeled as masculine and feminine in negotiation and also outline lessons for effectiveness for all genders.
