How to Negotiate

How to Negotiate with Chris Voss

How to Negotiate with Chris Voss

You may not realize it, but you negotiate with people every single day! But if you’re like many people, you either don’t know how to negotiate, or you simply hate doing it.

Do you own a car or a home? Do you have a job? Are you married and have kids? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then yes, you are a negotiator! No matter what you do in life, YOU negotiate. Whether you are making a decision with your spouse, your boss, or a client, you negotiate every day.

Having strong negotiation skills can be the difference between success and failure. However, it can be confusing to understand how to become a better negotiator.

In today’s interview, I speak with former FBI Hostage Negotiator Chris Voss. Chris is the author of the book Never Split the Difference. He is also the founder and principal of The Black Swan Group, which provides training to Fortune 500 companies on complex negotiation techniques.

Chris took some time to discuss the importance of strong negotiation skills, and how we can take these skills with us in our lives. As someone who saw himself as a good negotiator, I thought Chris’s message was a real eye opener. It can help you learn new ways to be a better negotiator both in and out of the office. Even if you don’t already think of yourself as a negotiator, having these skills is an important part of life.

King of Sales and Napoleon Hill I

King of Sales and Napoleon Hill

In August of 1993 my brother gave me a copy of Napoleon Hill’s Self-Help classic Think and Grow Rich.  If you don’t know who Napoleon Hill is or haven’t heard of his book – stop what you are doing and buy the book now.  In the hundred years since he began writing and teaching, Napoleon Hill’s book has sold over 100 million copies.  To this day he holds the position as world leader in self-help, personal development and positive attitude.

Just as Think and Grow Rich, has impacted millions of readers it also has impacted who I am as a person, father, business owner and radio show host.  My interview is going to be special for all startups and entrepreneurs listening – because a few years ago the Napoleon Hill Foundation uncovered Hill’s ORIGINAL writings and teachings from 1919.
