Difficult conversations are inevitable. 

People often avoid them because of the stress or anxiety it brings.

Their negotiation strategies stem from the same tactics used by the FBI in hostage and kidnapping situations.

In this episode, we chat about how to master these negotiation techniques to lead difficult conversations with confidence for more productive and practical solutions.
