Greatest Moments in Bargaining
1. Learning From Diane Rae, Gary Brown, and Jim O'Sullivan
2. Pulling 36 straight hours bargaining at Knox, looking up at the ceiling wondering what I had gotten myself into.
3. Trying and failing many times to convince a former District Administrator that the latest proposal was a "give" to them (because we wanted something else in return) and finally saying, "Fine, if you can't figure out that this proposal puts more money in the District's pockets, then we withdraw the damn thing and don't want to talk about it anymore!"
