Getting It Done: How to Lead When You're Not in Charge. Roger Fisher and Alan Sharp. (Harper Business, 1998)

What can you do to facilitate effective school meetings when you're not in charge? 

Roger Fisher (co-author of Getting to Yes) explains why collaborating with others is so difficult. People have minds of their own - and their decisions are influenced by their emotions. 

Fisher offers a new strategy - how one person can help the group formulate a clear vision of results, suggest a course of action, and learn from past experiences. He shows how to ask questions, offer ideas, and make suggestions that will be heard. He shows how you can influence the actions of others by your own behavior.

"Well organized, easy to read. Offers lots of ideas about how to influence the way your team works. How to get past the pointless meetings and reactive in-fighting."

You Can Negotiate Anything by Herb Cohen

You Can Negotiate Anything feels like it was written as my own personal guide to dealing with the world. I've given Negotiate Anything to a dozen or so people who have had an indentical reaction. My only gripe is that Cohen apparently never wrote a second book."

Recommended by attorney mediators Diana Santa Maria and Marc Gregg in  7 Steps to Effective Mediation.

 "How to Argue and Win Every Time" by Gerry Spence is not about arguing. It is about effective oral presentation of your position, using story telling and visual imagery. Pete used the principles in this book in the Carter oral argument.
