“Reasonable people know that no one can have everything his way. Negotiation means that both sides gain and also that both sides lose something.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States and the driving force in creating the 1948 charter of liberties, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights; from her column “My Day”, September 13, 1961
I have worked many years as a labor-relations lawyer and I am a negotiator, administrator, problem-solver and teacher with a diverse portfolio. With a Harvard Law degree and more than 25 years experience, I can provide the highest quality negotiation, contract and workplace advice and assistance, as well as pre-packaged or tailored training for you or your staff, without the big-firm mark-up. I have taught at Rutgers University and currently teach for the Scheinman Institute at Cornell University. I provide direct services, counsel and advice to organizations small and large, as well as to individuals.
”The negotiation strategy, concepts, and techniques training taught by Debra Osofsky while I attended negotiation courses at Cornell University’s Scheinman Institute on Dispute Resolution were second to none (OUTSTANDING).
“I am thoroughly impressed with the negotiation strategy and techniques training and how within no time at all, Debra had us understanding (exploring) our personal negotiating style and how to employ your style effectively in various settings and with negotiators of the same and different styles.
“I strongly recommend Debra Osofsky for your negotiation strategy and techniques, training, needs.”
