The Limits of Emotional Intelligence as a Negotiation Skill inShare106 Adapted from “In Negotiation, Emotional Intelligence Brings Mixed Results,” first published in the April 2014 issue of Negotiation Briefings. The concept of emotional intelligence burst into the cultural imagination in 1995 with the publication of psychologist Daniel Goleman’s bestselling book of the same name.

After all, the qualities that characterize emotional intelligence—awareness of our emotions and how they affect others, the ability to regulate our moods and behavior, empathy, the motivation to meet meaningful personal goals, and strong social skills—seem as if they’d help us get what we want from others and find common ground.

Secure protocols for accountable warrant execution Last week the press reported that the White House will seek to redesign the NSA’s mass phone call data program, so that data will be held by the phone companies and accessed by the NSA, subject to a new warrant requirement. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court will issue the warrants. Today Josh Kroll and I, with colleagues at Stanford University, released a draft paper on how to use cryptography to implement warrants to data in a secure, private, and accountable way. Our solution is a set of multi-party cryptographic protocols involving three primary parties: a data source who has data records, an investigator who wants access to data held by the data source, and a court (or other authorizer) who issues an order or warrant to authorize access to a record. For example, a phone company might be the data source, the NSA might be the investigator, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court might be the court that issues an order.
