Learn how to get what you want!
In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Alexandra Carter, an award-winning negotiation trainer and professor at Columbia Law School. She is also best-selling author of ‘Ask For More.’ She has worked closely with leaders at major organizations like Google, Zynga, the United Nations, and NBCUniversal.
Today, we’ll talk about Alex’s journey to be a world-class academic and negotiation expert she is today as well as the basics you should know before going into a negotiation. We will also dig deeper into how to gather information during a negotiation, common mistakes made in a negotiation, and why you should continue to ask for more, even during a pandemic.
