Our thanks for your support in the management of this senior-level planning and dialogue exercise. You did not act merely as a consultant, but from day one you mutated into one of us. I was personally impressed by your spirit of organization and method, and by your keen familiarity with what we do.
Our Mission is Simple:
Empowering Others to Negotiate and Collaborate More Effectively Using Our Mutual Gains Approach
We empower stakeholders — public and private, government and community — to resolve issues, reach better, more durable agreements and build stronger relationships.
The Consensus Building Institute (CBI) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1993 by leading practitioners and theory builders in the fields of negotiation and dispute resolution. Our experts bring decades of experience brokering agreements and building collaboration in complex, high-stakes environments.
We're proud of our successes, and we share our approach with others through partnership, research, and teaching at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, MIT, and other leading institutions.
