This summer, in partnership with the University of Nebraska Medical Center Office of Public Health Practice and the Nebraska Association of Local Health Directors, we produced a three part webinar series on persuasive communication.
Our speaker for the series was Kwame Christian, Esq., MA. Kwame is the director of the American Negotiation Institute where he conducts negotiation and conflict management workshops around the country. As an attorney and mediator with a bachelor of arts in psychology, a master of public policy, and a law degree, he brings a unique multidisciplinary approach to making difficult conversations easier. In addition to his role with the American Negotiation Institute, Kwame also serves as a professor at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and Otterbein University’s MBA program.
Kwame is the author of the best-selling book, Nobody will Play with Me: How to Use Compassionate Curiosity to Find Confidence in Conflict, and his TEDx Talk, Finding Confidence in Conflict, was the most popular TEDx Talk on the topic of conflict in 2017. He also hosts the top negotiation podcast in the world, Negotiate Anything. The show has been downloaded more than 600,000 times and has listeners in 181 different countries.
