Ku’ikahi Mediation Hosts Next Lunch TalkApril 7, 2019, 10:30 AM HST (Updated April 1, 2019, 2:19 PM)
The nonprofit Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center hosts a free talk on Thursday, April 18, 2019, as part of their “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace” Brown Bag Lunch Series. Talks are third Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. in the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney located at 655 Kilauea Ave. in Hilo.
This month’s speaker is Julie Mitchell on the topic “The Art of Negotiation: Getting What You Want Through Collaborative Problem-Solving.”
“Do you want to effectively negotiate household chores; your salary, job title, or a promotion; or your next car or home purchase?” asks Mitchell. “Knowing what you want and how to ask for it is one of the first steps to becoming a skillful negotiator.”
In this interactive talk, learn some powerful negotiation techniques—including framing the ask, making offers and counteroffers, and sealing the deal.
Mitchell grew up in Los Angeles, received her B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Irvine, and moved to East Hawai‘i in 1998. A Weinberg Fellow, she holds a certificate in Professional Development for Not-For-Profit Management from HCC and received a 2016 AIM For Excellence Award for Outstanding Achievement in Nonprofit Management. In addition to being Ku‘ikahi’s executive director, Mitchell is also a mediator, facilitator and trainer.
Ku‘ikahi’s Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, enjoy an informal and educational talk-story session, and meet others interested in “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace.”
This lunch-and-learn series is made possible thanks in part to funding from the Atherton Family Foundation, County of Hawai‘i and Hawai‘i Island United Way.
