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.

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!

This week on YAP, we’re chatting with Jonah Berger, NYT best-selling author, full-time professor at Wharton University and a world-renowned expert on change, influence, and consumer behavior.  Ever since he was a kid, Jonah had an eye for patterns and data. At age 7, he tested at genius IQ levels, AND he got near-perfect SAT scores in high school. His mathematical, detail-oriented mind makes him exceptionally aware of patterns in human behavior.  Jonah is author of three books on psychology and consumer behavior, and two of his books, Contagious and Invisible Influence are New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers. He was named one of the top 30 leaders in business by the American Management Association, and one of the most creative people in business by Fast Company magazine.  In this episode, Jonah tells us about how he first became interested in human behavior and what career opportunities are available in this field. We’ll learn why people are not like marbles in the sense that they cannot be forced to change; and why removing key barriers like reactance and endowment is what actually can bring about successful change in people.   If you want to learn the way to change anyone’s mind and more generally bring about change in the world - this episode is for you!
