    #144: The Art and Science Behind Negotiation with Chris Voss

    #144: The Art and Science Behind Negotiation with Chris Voss

    Have you ever wondered what goes through the mind of a hostage negotiation expert?
    In this episode, we talk with Chris Voss, formally the FBI’s leading international hostage and kidnapping negotiator. Now he spends his time as an author, professor, CEO of the Black Swan Group, and teaching his Masterclass: Teaching the Art of Negotiation which shows others how to apply his learnings from international crises and high-stakes negotiations to the business world. Chris is regarded as one of the most influential negotiators of our time. He wrote the best-selling book, “Never Split the Difference,” which lays out actionable negotiation strategies and is known as the bible of negotiation. Chris joins us on YAP today to teach us how to negotiate as if our lives depended on it and become more persuasive in both our professional and personal lives.
    In today’s episode, Chris shares his knowledge with the YAP podcast. He tells us about his journey from FBI agent to hostage negotiation and what specific negotiation tactics he uses and why they have been so successful. Chris covers the reason why giving someone a chance to start with saying “no” can be more useful than getting them to start with saying “yes”. We learn about the neuroscience behind why tactical empathy is the best way to diffuse a situation and get someone to say the magic phrase, “that’s right!” Chris teaches his 7, 38, 55 body language method and tells us that people don’t remember what you said, they remember how they felt. If you are looking to learn how to negotiate your way through any situation, you don’t want to miss this episode!

    #YAPSnacks - The Evolution of Sleep

    #YAPSnacks - The Evolution of Sleep

    Sleep has always been our constant companion!
    But what do we really know about its history and growth?

    Today on YAP Snacks, Hala will talk about the evolution of sleep while sharing tips and tricks from professionals that we’ve spoken to in previous episodes.
     
    Sleep is such a popular topic on this podcast because it’s ever-evolving. The more we learn about it the more we realize that the act of getting a good night’s sleep isn’t as simple as you may think!

    So in this episode, we will be looking to the past to see how our ancestors treated sleep, the present to learn how it developed with our rapidly growing society, and then into the future to see what sleep technology has in store for us!

    What we know about sleep is still expanding, but it's gone on an interesting journey… So let's get started!

    #143: The Future of Sleep with Matteo Franceschetti

    #143: The Future of Sleep with Matteo Franceschetti

    Did you know that more than 30% of Americans struggle with their sleep?

    In this episode, we are talking with Matteo Franceschetti, the Co-Founder and CEO of Eight Sleep, the sleep fitness company. Along with his obsession for athletic performance, business performance, and now sleep performance Matteo and his team are the pioneers of sleep fitness technology. 

    Matteo has always been an athlete with an obsession with recovery and performance. After spending time as a securities lawyer and launching companies in the renewable energy space he rediscovered his passion for optimizing his body’s performance. He realized there was an incredible need for smarter sleep products and this was where the idea for Eight Sleep was born! Their tech enabled mattress, the Pod significantly enhances your sleep quality through thermoregulation. Over the course of the night, the Pod detects your changing body temperature via sensors built into the mattress and sends its data to their app to track all of your vital information. They have recently created their Pod Pro Cover, which adds their patented thermoregulation technology to your existing mattress. While Eight Sleep has already made huge strides in the sleep fitness technology industry, they have only just begun!
    In today’s episode, we discuss Matteo’s journey to becoming CEO of Eight Sleep and what the future of sleep technology has in store for us. We cover the impact that sleep deprivation has on not only our health but how it has also caused billions of dollars and millions of working hours lost globally. Matteo also gives his insight into the future of sleep and sleep technology. During this conversation, we think outside the box and predict just how the future will change the way we look at sleep. 

    So relax! And listen to how you can achieve a better night’s sleep!

Mish Mari ,

Makes me smarter!

Hala, thanks so much for this podcast! Each time I listen, I feel a little smarter and have more topics and advice I can share with others! Being a service oriented person I love helping people. But I don’t always have all the knowledge and time to learn so I can teach others. I love how I can be on the train, driving, chores or waiting for my flight and I can learn something new and inspiring each time! I’ve finally found my way to keep learning and growing even when I don’t have time to sit down and read.
