Mr. Michael Wheeler, professor at Harvard Business School and author of the Art of Negotiation, is on the show.
Mike's book dives into a topic that most people don't talk about and that's the role of improvisation in negotiations. We get into how to improvise and what you need to do to ensure you're light on your feet so you can react when you need to.
Mike and I also get into a discussion about AAR's or After Action Reviews and doing deep dives into your negotiation after the fact to see what you did well, what didn't go well and what can be improved for next time. Mike's even developed a cool little app called the Negotiation 360 app (available on Google Play and the App Store) that allows you to rank and rate your negotiation and take notes on it so you can track your progress on skill set from one negotiation to the next.
The amazing and incredible Sandra Gault (www.truegault.com) is on the show.
To call Sandra a disrupter would be an understatement. She's literally turned the women's shoe industry on it's head.
We get into an amazing conversation about raising capital, developing credibility, and negotiating with shoe manufacturers.
This is the sixth of seven interviews that I did at the WIN Summit
We talk about the tech industry as being a disruptive space a lot. But what about the cannabis industry? This interview is with Bruce Linton, the Founder, CEO and Chairman of Canopy Growth Corporation.
Canopy is the largest cannabis producer in the world and Bruce has been largely responsible for it's growth as well as the growth of the cannabis industry in general.
The questions that I asked myself going into this interview was, "How the heck does a guy take a product that was, and still is in many countries, an illegal substance and make it a product that is now considered mainstream? " and "What are the negotiation techniques and tools he used to make that happen?"
Caroline Hubbard, a young Harvard grad who works at LinkedIn as a strategy analyst is on the show to talk about enacting change in the work place and the negotiation skills required to do so. But more than that, it was about how different generations in the work place can work together to generate better results. Of course we talked about Millennials and their impact on the work place and she was able to get me to reflect on my very own biases. She was wonderful to talk to and I think LinkedIn should be very proud of her.
This is the 4th of 7 interviews I did live in the speaker's room at WIN Summit.
