NEGOTIATING HEALTH CARE
Prof. Stuart Diamond: Wharton, Penn Law, Penn Engineering and UPenn Medical School
The medical field is a mess, with fighting everywhere. Personal, economic and political issues often seem to smother the goal of better care. The main reason is the lack of skills in personal interaction – persuasion and problem-solving. This presentation will outline a new model human interaction, developed over 25 years at Wharton and globally. It is providing key improvements in medical and other sectors, as well as in personal relationships. It is new research by a leading practitioner in negotiation.
Stuart Diamond’s negotiation course has been the most sought-after course at Wharton over the past 20 years. His book on negotiation, Getting More, has sold 1.4 million copies, was called the best book to read for one’s career by The Wall Street Journal’s career site and one of 25 books for success to read in one’s life by Business Insider. His team has trained 12,000 people at Google; he is the negotiation trainer for Seal Team 6, and in a former career won a Pulitzer Prize as a reporter for The New York Times. He has a law degree from Harvard, an MBA from Wharton and ran multiple companies on laser eye surgery.
