Basics of Negotiation with Margaret Anderson Kelliher

Our guest speaker, Margaret Anderson Kelliher, served as Minnesota's Speaker of the House from 2006 - 2010. Her most famous negotiation triumph was brokering the House override of the governor's veto of the transportation bill in 2008, which required six Republican legislators to join with the DFL majority in the vote. She presented on best practices in negotiation and led us through an exercise to help improve our negotiation abilities.
