For The Media
Our Blog’s mission is to instruct and inspire employees in their lifelong workplace “negotiations.” But to instruct and inspire, it is necessary, first, to communicate. And to communicate with the widest possible audience, we work with the media.
We regularly and enthusiastically collaborate with a wide variety of media outlets regarding workplace issues, trends and topics of interest, especially related to negotiation. Media we have worked with include The New York Times, CNN, Court TV, National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal, and Business Week magazine.
Reporters, journalists, producers and interviewers working under deadline pressure can count on our prompt provision of illustrative text, quotes, commentary and case histories. For live radio and television, we make ourselves available to the maximum extent possible.
The workplace is a compelling “theater” of human interactions, human emotions, human aspirations, and human strivings. We invite your interest and inquiries. Kindly direct them to Sheree Donath, Mr. Sklover’s Law Partner, or Ms. Phyllis Iturriaga, Mr. Sklover’s Executive Assistant.
