11. Christopher Voss - FBI Hostage Negotiator

Life Done Different

The phone rings. You pick it up and on the other line you hear a voice that says:   “We have your wife and child. You have 24 hours to get us 5 million dollars or else they die.”    What do you do?    I can’t imagine what getting a call like that would feel like, let alone what to do. But for Chris Voss (@VossNegotiation), this would have been just another day in the office. For 24 years, Chris was an FBI hostage negotiator, during 4 of which, he actually lead the bureau as chief international hostage and kidnapping negotiator.   I struggle to think of a more high stakes, high stress job, so I wanted to talk to Chris about why he chose this route. Naturally, we talked a lot about negotiation but we also talk about the human element of being a hostage negotiator and like how do you deal with the fact that someones life is in your hands and what happens if you fail?    Aside from the heavy stuff, Chris was also kind enough to indulge me in a negotiation role play and suffice it to say that it did not go how I expected, but perhaps that was to    Knowing Chris’ background made him an intimidating guy to talk to - I was nervous the whole time and felt like he could have picked me apart at any moment had he wanted to. Nevertheless, it was super exhilarating and it changed a lot of what I think about when it comes to negotiations so please enjoy this conversation with Chris Voss.

In this episode… Negotiation tactics may sound like some kind of manipulative ploy to get people to do what you want, but Christopher Voss, one of the FBI’s most successful hostage negotiators in history, says that negotiation is not about manipulation, it’s about understanding the person on the other side of the conversation. In this interview, you’ll hear Chris unpack that definition and learn some very basic but powerful negotiations tactics that you can use in everyday life. Getting the person you are talking with to the point of saying “That’s right” is a pivotal point in any negotiation. It’s the point when you know that you’ve understood their side of the argument and that they are beginning to feel that you are someone who genuinely wants to help them. Find out how to use the “that’s right” principle to advance your negotiations on this episode. Christopher Voss says that one of the simplest but most powerful negotiation tactics the average person can learn is the practice of labeling. It’s learning a specific way to re-express what has been said to you that disarms and deflates the tension in the conversation, enabling you to get further in your negotiation. You can find out how to use labeling and what it can mean for your next business deal in this conversation. You’ve heard it said that you want to get to “Yes” in business negotiations. But Chris Voss says it’s more important to get to “no.” When a person is able to respond to you with a “no” answer, it gives them a sense of power and leverage that will lead them to tell more of what is really on their mind instead of keeping up a facade of control and composure. It’s an amazing negotiation tactic that yields great results. Did you know that putting yourself into a positive mindset before any conversation will enable you to more effectively deal with the conversation? A positive mood will make you 31% more effective in processing information, hearing what others are saying, and having an impact on the conversation in a positive way. You can learn how to do it on this episode of Inspired Insider.
