About the Conference
How do our brains manage emotion, make decisions, and analyze the behavior of another person? What biological processes drive the behavior of humans in conflict before and during a negotiation or mediation? Are your current negotiation, dispute resolution and decision-making strategies designed to take advantage of the recent discoveries in neurobiology? This groundbreaking and recently updated workshop is designed to benefit business executives, lawyers, in-house counsel, mediators and other ADR professionals in:

  • Recognizing the brain’s decision-making shortcuts and biases
  • Preparing for negotiation and mediation
  • Implementing key skills such as emotional regulation, attention
  • orientation and mindfulness
  • Diagnosing possible causes of conflict and designing successful processes based
  • on neuroscience
  • Understanding how mediation is not only a facilitated negotiation, but also a
  • social, emotional and cognitive process
  • Understanding neurobiology across cultures and genders

Jeremy Lack, an international lawyer and ADR Neutral, and Francois Bogacz, cofounder of Neuroawareness Consulting Services, Inc. are experts in the field and have trained hundreds of professionals on neuroscience, decision-making, negotiation and mindfulness. Welcome remarks by Teresa Frisbie, director, Dispute Resolution Program, Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
