Negotiation Coach Elizabeth Suárez on ‘The Art of Getting Everything’

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Negotiation expert Elizabeth Suárez says that the secret to being a master negotiator is not outsmarting the other guy or gal, it’s being confident about who you are and what are your goals.

Elizabeth, educated at The Wharton School of Business and the Harvard University Executive Management Program, is the author of “The Art of Getting Everything: How to Negotiate for What You Want and More.”  This week, she shares some of her best negotiating strategies with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart

Brian Harman Relies on Storytelling, Humor, and a Splash of Vulgarity to Teach Leadership

His Book Aims to Help the Next Generation of Owners and Bosses

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Brian Harman works in supply chain management for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company. He relies on storytelling, humor, and a splash of vulgarity to instruct lousy business leaders in the art of leadership excellence.

Stepping aside from his day-to-day responsibilities, Brian recruited family and friends to help him write, publish, and promote a book he hopes will inspire a new generation of leaders who aren’t burdened with the bad habits of existing owners and bosses.

Brian’s book, How to Avoid a Leadersh*t, co-written with his cousin, Stephanie M. Taglianetti, uses an expletive in its title, just like the enormously popular bestseller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*uck.

If foul language – or innovative thinking – offends you, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart suggests you skip this week’s episode.
