Negotiation expert Deborah Kolb visited Google's Cambridge, MA office to discuss her book, "Negotiating at Work: Turn Small Wins into Big Gains". The book offers practical advice for managing your own workplace negotiations: how to get opportunities, promotions, flexibility, buy-in, support, and credit for your work. It does so within the context of organizational dynamics, recognizing that to negotiate with someone who has more power adds a level of complexity.
