Mary Parker Follett Week
Featuring Discussions, Presentations and Book Signings with Joan Goldsmith and Ken Cloke
November 12-16, 2019.
Presented by Selina Shultz, Esq., LL.M and The Conflict Lab
In honor of Mary Parker Follett, The Prophet of Management and Integrative Bargaining, please join us for a week filled with wisdom and discussion with two of the most respected names in Dispute Resolution and Organizational Development, Ken Cloke and Joan Goldsmith.
“The Lab is hosting what we hope to be an annual event called Mary Parker Follett Week. Mary Parker Follett (1868-1933) is recognized as the “Prophet of Management” in the Organizational Development World. Bravely speaking out as a woman in that time, she promoted revolutionary ideas of how employees at all levels should be engaged in the workplace. In 1925, she was the first to write about integrative bargaining in her paper called Constructive Conflict (a theory that was later written about in the well known book Getting to Yes by Fisher & Ury, although her name is not cited there). The Association for Conflict has recognized that she was an early advocate of resolving conflict by encouraging parties to integrate interests into negotiations by giving an annual Mary Parker Follett Award to an individual who has shown a passion and willingness to take risks; in tackling a contemporary problem or opportunity in the field of dispute resolution; has used innovative and experimental techniques; and draws upon the talents and ideas of all persons involved.
The purpose of Mary Parker Follett Week is twofold, 1.) To honor and build upon her work in dispute resolution, and 2.) To support developing women thought leaders. This year, I am very excited that my mentors, Ken Cloke and Joan Goldsmith will be presenting four different events at The Lab.”
