#YAPLive: Negotiation Masterclass with Chris Voss and Alex Carter (Cut Version)

#YAPLive: Negotiation Masterclass with Chris Voss and Alex Carter (Cut Version)

We enter into negotiations big and small every day!

Our ability to navigate these negotiations is often the deciding factor in us getting what we want or not getting what we want.

But just the thought of “entering into a negotiation with someone” can be uncomfortable or even intimidating. We picture ourselves stuck in a win/lose scenario that ends with us being a winner or a loser.

My guests today, the legendary Chris Voss and Alex Carter, have a very different view of negotiation. Chris Voss and Alex Carter have spent decades studying human behavior – Chris as an FBI hostage negotiator, and Alex as a negotiation trainer for the United Nations.

In this highlight episode, Chris and Alex reframe negotiation as a skill we can use to achieve the best possible outcome for all parties involved. 

The best part? This skill can be learned, and in today’s episode, Chris and Alex share their best practices for becoming a master negotiator.

In this episode Hala will chat with Alex and Chris about the crucial role curiosity plays in negotiation, how to ask the right questions, they’ll share real negotiation success stories, and much more! 

Let’s meet the guests!
