#52: Conversations at Base Camp - How to Ask for and Get What You Want


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 how most of the time people ask for what they think they can get, instead of what they want.

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.
