Chris Voss – Hostage Negotiator

Stuck indoors? Looking for a positive distraction during the pandemic? Check out Chris Voss Teaches Art of Negotiation at MasterClass. He’s a well-known hostage negotiator and ex-FBI legend. According to Chris, “Everything in life is a negotiation; life is a negotiation.”

Why do you need this class? What if I told you that hostage negotiator skills can be useful every day? For instance, do your kids want a different curfew time? Try hostage negotiator skills. Your husband wants to buy a fancy sports car? Try hostage negotiator skills. Do you want to go wine tasting for a long weekend without the husbands? Once again, try hostage negotiator skills.

Even well-known comedian Jim Gaffigan could use his skills. He’s discovered that everything is a negotiation, especially with kids. He jokes that his youngest daughter acts as the ring leader for his other four kids. He becomes a hostage negotiator.

For instance, Gaffigan caves and gives in to their demands as long as they go to sleep. It’s humorous and true. Negotiating with children is part of fatherhood. And sometimes, we have to negotiate with our kids to regain some of our sleep.
