One of the very best of the ADR blogs is International Dispute Negotiation, a high-quality podcast series hosted by Michael McIlwrath, Senior Counsel, Litigation for GE Infrastructure - Oil & Gas, whose home base is Florence, Italy.
Masterfully produced, these podcasts offer conversations with leading thinkers and distinguished practitioners who bring a global perspective on mediation, arbitration, and negotiation. Although international in focus, these interviews have relevance to ADR practice or negotiation wherever in the world you may be.
The most recent podcasts are:
- Mediating with Hard Negotiators, the second part of a two-part interview with Australian mediator John Wade
- Detecting Lies and Concealing Emotions: The Eckman Group’s Clark Freshman on Negotiating, discussing common mistakes people make with emotions in cross-cultural situations and how to take a universal approach in connecting with others at the negotiating table.
