Season 1, Episode 52

I'm a social scientist who helps people break out of the invisible traps and make whole-life changes easily and naturally.

How do you ask for and get what you want?

I used to be a business school professor and one of the key courses I would teach to MBAs, undergrads and executive MBAs is negotiation, the skills and theories around negotiation and how to get what you want.

By far, the biggest takeaway is most of the time people ask for what they think they can get, instead of what they want.

On Allowed: Conscious Leadership and Personal Growth, I share a conversation I had with Noa Ries and Kim Havens on their podcast called “Conversations at Base Camp”.

We discuss Zone of Genius and how it relates to asking for and getting what you want, as well as applicable strategies for having real-life negotiation conversations.

Last week on the show, Noa Ries and Kim Havens, co-founders of Women’s Executive Network Leadership Educational Platform, Kahilla, shared their co-leadership strategies.

In this episode, I share a separate conversation I had with them on their podcast called “Conversations at Base Camp” where we cover Zone of Genius and how it relates to asking for and getting what you want, as well as applicable strategies for having real-life negotiation conversations so that you can increase the lifetime value in a monetary fashion but also in many other ways of your career.
