Are you a good negotiator or would you prefer to avoid it like the plague? Well, the fact is we all negotiate every single day – and a big part of the problem with negotiation is how we approach it. My guest, Dan Shapiro is going to give a fresh and rather positive outlook on negotiation and help you become much better at it. Dan is one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject of negotiation. He is the founder and director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program, associate professor in psychology at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital and author of the book Negotiating the Nonnegotiable. Also, why is Siri female? In fact why are most digital voices like GPS almost always female? We’ll take a look at the reasons why. Plus, what is your purpose in life? Maybe you have multiple purposes. If so that is a good thing according to Victor Strecher author of Life On Purpose. Victor explains the importance of having a purpose and living a life in harmony with that purpose. It turns out when you do, amazing things can happen. And also on today’s episode, why you should stop telling people how busy you are. You could really be pushing people away and losing friends by always using the excuse, “I’ve been so busy.” I’ll reveal what you should say instead.
