    Your impact checklist

    Here are a list of things you can do before and after the event to join the conversation.

    • Take a deep look into Chris Voss' work as an FBI hostage negotiator here and check out his book Never Split the Difference: Negotiation As If Your Life Depended On It.

    • Remember that when negotiating: Before you express what you want, summarize their perspective until they say to you "that's right!" 
    • Look for opportunities in everyday interactions to negotiate. Try out techniques as almost mini-negotiations so you can practice getting better at it. Keep track of your results to see your progress and pay attention to what is working and what isn't. Tweak your approach as you go.  Remember: the goal is not to be right. It's to get what you want or need. 
    • Start by asking your boss for a raise! 
    • Politics is all about negotiation. Have you wondered if your voice is being heard? Write your representative or track how your Congressperson votes.
