Chris Voss was a FBI negotiator for 30 years in New York. He handled situations like bank robberies and terrorist organizations when it came to negotiating deals with them. Chris has now turned those lessons and skills he learned during his time with the FBI into a master class called "The Black Swan Method" for business negotiation. In today's Episode, James and Chris talk about a Bank Robbery that happened at Chase Bank in New York. During the story of this robbery, Chris breaks down his every move and details how it relates to everyday life. From everything to using these skills to get a hotel upgrade to scoring a better deal in business, these skills can be used by anyone and are effective if used correctly. To conclude the episode, Chris tells James how he can predict when someone will give up based on data of the human brain.
