Negotiation : myths, misperceptions and damned lies by Margaret Ann Neale( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
Program highlights What is your biggest source of power in any negotiation? How to redraw the boundaries of a negotiation in your favour? How focusing on the upside improves your deal. It's better to receive the first offer than to give it. Honesty is the best negotiating policy. Don't ever let them see you sweat. Professor Neale convincingly debunks these common beliefs as she shares the results of empirical research on negotiating strategies and the process of "mutual influence" that drives negotiation. In fact, making the first offer can set the bar high to your advantage. Being honest about your bottom line can backfire. And emotions can play a powerful role in negotiations. Before you begin, be clear about your goal. Is it to get as much value out of a deal as possible? To develop a relationship and create value for both parties? Or simply to win a dangerous goal! In any case, you need to determine three things: your bottom line, your optimistic target, and your alternatives if the deal fails. Try to figure out the same of your negotiating counterpart. The more prepared you are, the more flexibility you have in negotiating strategies. In the end, don't settle for just any deal. Work to get a good deal or it's no deal. Margaret A. Neale is the director of the Influence and Negotiation Strategies Executive Program at Stanford and the coauthor of three books, including Organizational Behavior: A Management Challenge. She received her bachelor's degree from Northeast Louisiana University, her master's degrees from the Medical College of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University and her PhD in Business Administration from the University of Texas
Quiet rage : the Stanford prison study by Stanford University( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
In the summer of 1971, Philip Zimbardo, Craig Haney, and Curtis Banks carried out a psychological experiment to test a simple question: What happens when you put good people in an evil place -- does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph? College student volunteers were pretested and randomly assigned to play the role of prisoner or guard in a simulated prison at Stanford University. This film uses archival footage, flashbacks, post-experiment interviews with the prisoners and guards, and comparisons with real prisons. It documents the study from the surprise arrests of the participants by city police, to the termination of the study after only 6 days. The Stanford Prison Study remains one of the most famous studies conducted in the field of Social Psychology

Belief, awareness, and limited reasoning (1986) by Joseph Y Halpern( visu )
2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
This lecture discusses three approaches to solving the problems of logical omniscience. In our logics, one agent's set of beliefs does not necessarily include all valid formulas. While one logic deals with awareness, where it is necessary to first be aware of a concept before one can have beliefs about it, another logic presents a model of local reasoning where an agent is viewed as a society of minds, each with its own cluster of beliefs
Events, causality, and the frame problem (1986) by Michael P Georgeff( visu )
2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
This lecture examines some representations of events and actions to see how the "frame problem" manifests itself. Georgeff discusses classical models of action and presents a new model of action suited to reasoning about dynamic domains. Notions of independence and causality are introduced, and it is shown how these can be used to determine the effects of actions and the persistence of world properties. In particular, Georgeff shows how many of the difficulties associated with the frame problem can be avoided with such a multiagent formulation
