What’s new in May:

In this month’s edition, Irma Tyler Wood, C. Mark Smith and Charles Barker present an article on new directions in labor nations in an article entitled “Three Models for Implementing Change in 21st Century Schools.” Readers will find this article of interest for both its implications in school negotiations and for its general potential in other fields of collective bargaining negotiations.

Tony Alessandra returns with a brief, but important article on how to become a better listener and thereby a more successful negotiator entitled “Listening Attentively.”

Next, Dianna Booher explores the communications differences between men and women that are critical to negotiating success in an article entitled “Gender Benders.”

The Reader’s Review of current books of importance to negotiators examines The Intelligent Negotiator by Charles Craver.

Lastly, the Ask the Negotiator column continues to invite all readers to send in their questions about any aspect of negotiations to be answered in future editions of the magazine.

We continue to seek articles on every aspect of negotiations. At this time, we are particularly looking for articles on crisis negotiations, negotiating ethics, non-profit negotiating, and new directions and research in the field. Articles from authors with perspectives outside the USA would be most welcome. Please contact me with your comments, suggestions of books for review and article proposals at
