    The Way Into Difficult Conversations, with Kwame Christian

    The Way Into Difficult Conversations, with Kwame Christian

    Kwame Christian: Negotiate Anything

    Kwame Christian is the Director of the American Negotiation Institute and business lawyer at Carlile Patchen & Murphy. His popular TED talk is titled Finding Confidence in Conflict.



    Today, he’s working extensively with organizations to help them improve their skills on negotiation and conflict resolution. Kwame hosts the top negotiation podcast, Negotiate Anything and is the author of the book Finding Confidence in Conflict: How to Negotiate Anything and Live Your Best Life*.

    Key Points

    Use the compassionate curiosity framework:



    Acknowledge and validate emotions

    Get curious with compassion

    Joint problem solving





    If a difficult situation needs to be discussed, giving a heads up to the other party in advance helps them to work through the initial, emotional reaction and reset for a more productive conversation.

    Separating conversations about the content or service being offered from the deal itself can be useful to focus energy in the right places at the right time. This is especially useful for creative folks or those who might be highly sensitive to negotiations.

    When dealing with someone who is not behaving well, use the phrase “The problem is…” as a transition point that provides you more agency in the conversation.

    How to Generate Quick Wins, with Andy Kaufman

He’s President of the Institute for Leadership Excellence & Development and works with organizations around the world, helping them improve their ability to deliver projects & lead teams.

    Key Points



    Change is inevitable — and should not be viewed as the enemy.

    Often, our training and education tends to lead us towards not thinking in the terms of quick wins.

    Agile is about incremental delivery.

    Frequency is valued. Our bias should be towards shorter intervals.

    Quick wins ultimately help you generate much faster feedback, leading to future steps.

    How to Get Noticed on LinkedIn, with Stephen Hart

    How to Get Noticed on LinkedIn, with Stephen Hart

    Stephen Hart: Trailblazers.FM

    Stephen is the host of the podcast Trailblazers.FM, helping entrepreneurs and leaders build amazing personal brands that are impactful, relatable and profitable. He features the stories of brilliant Black men and women – to help teach actionable strategies, valuable tactics and innovative tools that they can use on the journey to becoming transformative trailblazers.



    He’s also the creator of Brand You Academy* which helps busy, heart-centered entrepreneurs and leaders through a proven step by step process to build an amazing personal brand that is authentic, impactful and profitable. Use coupon code CFL200 if you decide to dive in on Stephen’s course.



    In this conversation, Stephen and I go beyond creating a LinkedIn profile and discuss how to be more proactive on LinkedIn. By writing articles, creating short videos, or even streaming, you can gain organic attention on LinkedIn that isn’t always as accessible on other social media platforms. We discuss some of the key strategies to start and sustain a presence on LinkedIn.

    Key Points



    Articles can be used effectively to create content if you’re not yet ready for video, but still interested in building your personal brand.

    Consider a series of articles or other content that highlight your personal brand and speak to your leadership credibility.

    Use short videos (3-5 minutes) to tell a story that leads to a call to action. LinkedIn videos typically get more organic views than other social platforms.

    Live videos or steaming engage real-time conversations to have dialogue that invites relationships to go further.

    Move Coaching from Theory to Practice, with Jason Weeman

    Move Coaching from Theory to Practice, with Jason Weeman

    Jason Weeman: Upwork

    Jason Weeman works to build meaningful relationships by creating experiences that are inspiring and transformational. He has worked for some of the top brands in the world, including Apple, LinkedIn, and Upwork. Today, he is the head of corporate learning and development at Upwork. One of the key areas of focus for his team and him is building a coaching culture.



    In this conversation, Jason and I discuss how his team was a catalyst for coaching culture at Upwork. We discuss what worked to influence culture in this way, what didn’t work, and the lessons they learned along the way.

    Key Points

    Be lazy, be curious, be often. -Michael Bungay Stanier



    Organizations are trying to create a culture for coaching, but not giving the feedback. The stronger that we develop a sense of common language on feedback, the better we get on quality.

    People sometimes don’t believe it should be so simple…so they try to make coaching development too complicated.

    Resist the urge to focus too much on data and tracking.

    Significant buy-in from executive leadership is critical for the success of a coaching program like this. Also, having a culture of “we” being in this together makes all the difference.
