Everyone's counting on you.
As if leadership isn't difficult enough, we find ourselves in an incredibly disruptive time. A complex environment that challenges teams, organizations, and communities.
The opposite of violence is negotiation.
Building consensus in crisis and chaos is the highest calling of executive leaders.
Imagine if you had a system, a habit, and a strategy of negotiating ANYTHING! What if you had a process that made you immune to aggressive demands? How valuable would it be to increase your backlog by 500%, profit margin by 19%, revenue by 600% (even during the crisis) just by negotiating better? And reduce your costs by 34% just by asking the right questions?
