Women in the Law 2016 Annual Meeting

How's your poker face? On April 7, 2016, the New York State Bar Association Committee on Women in the Law co-sponsored with Lowenstein Sandler Practicing Your Poker Face & Other Negotiation Skills. Ellen Leikind, founder of POKERprimaDIVAS and author of PokerWoman: How to Win in Love, Life, and Business using the Principles of Poker, taught the attendees the basics of poker and how to apply those skills at the negotiation table. Attendees learned a little about how to read other people, their own personality types, and some tips for negotiating with other personality types. Afterwards, guests connected over snacks and beverages – and a few practiced their new poker skills – before leaving with a copy of Ellen’s book. Seven Micro Expressions PDF
