GLSnext Event Series

Facing Fear in Uncertain Situations

Featuring Chris Voss and Host, Danielle Strickland

Learn from negotiation expert, Chris Voss, as we glean from his wealth of knowledge from 24 years of research and real-life experience as an FBI hostage negotiator. Chris will help us navigate negotiations, unpredictable situations and tackle fear in uncertain circumstances.

Chris will take time to address the five most important skills a leader can use during a time of crisis, addressing questions such as: What is the best way to help people deal with unpredictability and fear? How does a leader’s tone affect the outcome of your goals? And, what are the best practices for how quick a leader needs to make decisions and predict the future?
