Have you ever been in a situation where you had a gut feeling someone wasn’t being 100% honest with you, but you couldn’t put your finger on why? Maybe it was their body language, them not making eye contact, or their voice being a little shaky – but something just wasn’t right.
In business and in your relationships, learning how to pick up on nonverbal communication and cues can be a valuable skill that can go a long way for you. You’ll be able to determine if someone is trustworthy or not more easily, to notice if somebody isn’t feeling completely comfortable in a certain situation, and so much more.
That’s why I’m excited to share today’s mashup episode with you! It features body language and negotiation experts, Chris Voss & Evy Pompouras – who have been professionally trained and spent years in the Secret Service and FBI using these exact skills. And they’re going to share what they’ve learned in today’s show.
Chris Voss – During Chris’s 24 year tenure in the FBI, he was trained in the art of negotiation by not only the FBI but also Scotland Yard and Harvard Law School. He has used his many years of experience in international crises and high-stakes negotiations to develop a unique program and team that applies these globally proven techniques to the business world.
Evy Poumpouras – A member of the most prestigious protection force in the world for over 12 years, serving on the Secret Service’s Presidential Protective Division for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. She has also protected presidents George Bush Jr., Bill Clinton, and George Bush Sr. Evy also worked complex criminal investigations, operated undercover, and was an interrogator for the agency’s elite polygraph unit specially trained in the art of lie detection, human behavior, and cognitive influence.
