I have a friend with a terrific blog LZ Sunday News about women’s issues (lzsundaypaper.com). This week there is an article about a course given by the City of Boston to teach negotiating skills to women. I think that the Harvard Business School also offers courses in negotiating.

The best line I ever heard about negotiating was by Eugene McCarthy who when someone said his opponent was the best negotiator in the world, he said “That’s like being the best accordian player in the world.”
