Chris Voss was the FBI’s lead hostage negotiator. In this episode you’ll learn how you can apply the same skills he used to negotiate with bank robbers and terrorists to your everyday life. Life is a series of negotiations you should be prepared for: buying a car, negotiating a salary, buying a home, renegotiating rent, deliberating with your partner. Taking emotional intelligence and intuition to the next level, this conversation can give you the competitive edge in any discussion.
