The Deep Discovery Dive: How Negotiation Principles Create Opportunities for Growth
Are you creating eureka moments when you negotiate, sell, or build relationships with the invaluable humans around you?
You know, TRUE DISCOVERY.
Discovery is not a pack of boring, closed-ended, scripted questions.
And it's definitely not your pitch deck or your elevator speech, or your ineffective list of features, benefits, or attributes for your proposed product or service!
In fact, nearly everyone gets discovery wrong at first.
If you get it right- EUREKA!
Deals get made. Sales get closed. Minds get opened. Relationships get sealed.
Come learn how. And then begin to do what you learn. Perhaps, we may even build a plan for a new habit in deep, authentic discovery!
This is a workshop guaranteed to improve leadership strategies, cold-calls and e-mails, "pitches" for sales or fundraising, scope and fee discussions for professional design services, monthly check-ins for employee retention, and just about any opportunity to persuade.
Who should come?:
- Sales professionals
- Sales team leaders
- Solopreneuers and Entrepreneurs
Key takeaways. You'll learn how to:
Make meaningful observations from your counterpart's verbal, vocal, and visual cues.
Uncover the vision of pain that drives decisions.
Ask powerful questions that create discovery.
How to avoid turning discovery into an interrogation.
Learn how to get into your counterparties world.

He is the author of two books, “Life or Death Listening: A Hostage Negotiator’s How-to Guide to Mastering the Essential Communication Skill” and “The 28 Laws of Listening: Best Practices for the Master Listener”.
