In Negotiating at an Uneven Table Phyllis Beck Kritek explores the process of attempting to resolve conflicts in situations where unacknowledged inequity has an effect on problems and their outcomes. The author draws on her nursing background - from inexperienced student to accomplished dean of nursing - to offer an insightful book interwoven with original poetry, poignant stories, thought-provoking exercises, illustrative parables, and practical recommendations for solving problems and negotiating conflicts with fair and ethical outcomes.
To help open minds and balance the negotiation process, Kritek outlines ten ways of being that constructively address inequalities and diversity, including committing to personal authenticity, supporting truth telling, and initiating innovative practices. This inspiring book challenges traditional approaches to dealing with inequities at the negotiation table and offers alternatives for reframing the process. While drawing on examples from health care and educational settings, the book is a valuable resource for conflict negotiators, mediators, managers, therapists, social workers, and health care practitioners.
