Summary

A former international hostage negotiator for the FBI offers a new, field-tested approach to high-stakes negotiations—whether in the boardroom or at home. 
After a stint policing the rough streets of Kansas City, Missouri, Chris Voss joined the FBI, where his career as a hostage negotiator brought him face-to-face with a range of criminals, including bank robbers and terrorists. Reaching the pinnacle of his profession, he became the FBI’s lead international kidnapping negotiator. Never Split the Difference takes you inside the world of high-stakes negotiations and into Voss’s head, revealing the skills that helped him and his colleagues succeed where it mattered most: saving lives. In this practical guide, he shares the nine effective principles—counterintuitive tactics and strategies—you too can use to become more persuasive in both your professional and personal life. 
Life is a series of negotiations you should be prepared for: buying a car, negotiating a salary, buying a home, renegotiating rent, deliberating with your partner. Taking emotional intelligence and intuition to the next level, Never Split the Difference gives you the competitive edge in any discussion.

    Are you a born leader?You have what it takes.You know you are the most suited person for the job.You’re so positive that you can lead a lot of people towards good business… 
    Or so you think... 
    Because if you really are, then why did John, from the other department, got the job you’ve been dying to have since you entered the company? 
    Leadership is more than just being confident that you can manage a number of people and make them follow your lead. Each one of us influences at least ten thousand other people during our lifetime. Hence, the question is not whether we can influence these people, but in what manner shall we influence them? 
    There are instances that competitors suddenly give up believing that they just can never be leaders. Maybe I’m not really born to lead, they think.  
    On the contrary, the key to effective leadership does not depend primarily in the abilities we are born with, but in techniques, skills, character, and qualities that we are open to develop throughout life. 
    Have the tools to perfect your leadership abilities at your fingertips, starting today.

    The idea of leadership failure and derailment has been brushed under the carpet for far too long and only now are statistics appearing on the sheer number of leaders who fail at their jobs. Backstabbers and Bullies provides the latest psychiatric and clinical perspectives on dark-side behaviour, including: 
     
    - recognising and coping with over-confident, narcissistic and psychopathic leaders; 
    - causes of leadership derailment and failure; 
    - corrupt corporate cultures; and 
    - the criminal personality. 
     
     Fascinating reading for anyone who has worked alongside a corporate psychopath, business narcissist or histrionic show-off, Backstabbers and Bullies goes beyond the science to explain how to better understand, manage and prevent dark-side behaviour, as well as presenting advice for reducing derailment potential for yourself, your colleagues and your organisation.
