Book Recommendation Of The week – Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss.
The first recommendation of our most favourite books to educate, inspire and to help you grow is Never Split The Difference. Why do we love this book so much?
We negotiate and persuade numerous times a day. Then there’s the bigger stuff that changes the course of life such as landing your dream job or buying a car or house. Most of us have had no formal training in negotiation. This book is your secret weapon for negotiating like a boss.
Voss draws from his own experience as a hostage negotiator, but also from the business literature on negotiation, bringing it all together.
This book will allow you to negotiate as if your life depended on it. We hope you enjoy!
