Episode 48: FBI Hostage Negotiation – How Influential Are You?

Joe and I have just got back from my Who Are You event last week! It was exciting, but don’t worry if you missed it, I’m planning on hosting another one in the spring. Stay tuned for that! Joe and I continue their FBI hostage negotiation discussion and are now on step 4—influence! Most people skip the first 3 steps and get right to step 4, but that’s not how you build trust and expertise with your prospects.
