During his 24-year tenure at the FBI, Chris Voss developed a set of negotiation skills that apply as aptly to everyday life as they did in high-stakes national and international crime. He rose to become the bureau’s lead hostage negotiator, handling more than 150 international cases, and now he’s CEO and founder of the Black Swan Group, where he and his team train individuals and executives to be effective negotiators.
Also trained by Scotland Yard and Harvard Law School, Chris has shared his unique insight through his bestselling book “Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It.” Now, through his MasterClass, he’s sharing his field-tested techniques with you.
