Jason Cammorata joins us to chat about the benefits unique and different backgrounds can have for procurement professionals. As a long-time, high-performing musician, Jason learned a lot about performance, planning, and preparation that he’s applied to his procurement and negotiation career. What lessons can we learn from our past experiences? How can we take the skills we’ve learned and leverage them today? This week we’re reflecting on our past to understand how to be more successful today.
Jason shares the key skills and traits he developed during his time as a vocalist and performer including the importance of being frugal, the need to be resourceful, why being prepared is so important and having the confidence to walk into any situation with a clear understanding of what you’re doing. He shares some great insights on knowing when you’re being too aggressive, reading body language, and why performing is the ultimate collaboration. This week’s episode is a great time to reflect on what you’ve done in the past (sports, music, performance and more) and think about how you can apply your knowledge from those areas into your negotiation practice.
