How I do it
Hi, I'm Jamie. I'm a Complex Negotiations Strategist by trade and the Chief at Dispute Intelligence²™, the world's only special intelligence training program in commercial negotiations, deal-making and disputes. I know what you're thinking: this is downright sexier than a Victoria's Secret fashion show, right?
My philosophy is "more value, less drama". I believe that every good negotiator should be able to put out fires, but that the mark of a truly great negotiator is his ability to think 20 steps ahead of the game so he never has any *real* fires to put out.
I teach managers and leaders (who want to upgrade their soft skills) special strategies to create and leverage real value in negotiations, and then to manage disputes with special intel² (without a team of lawyers or dirty tricks).
I do this with my secret weapon, of course. What's that? Only my genius strategies, tools and systems backed by over 1000GB intel² on human dynamics x tested extensively in commercial practice, not available anywhere else on the planet. Ask me about it. I'm a tease like that.
is it for you?
It won't work if:
You want to avoid risk-taking. You need to be OK with some risk-taking…to break a few eggs to make an omelette.
You're looking for shortcuts to line your pocket. You'll be disappointed here if you're single-minded in that pursuit.
You're tied to the status quo. If you need things to stay the way they are then this will NOT work.
You have all the answers. You'll be disappointed here if you already have all the answers.
It could be a good fit if:
You manage disputes. You're a manager/partner who manages ongoing relationships as they turn to disputes.
You want durable solutions to improve your practice. You'll sharpen your mental tools and have greater influence over the status quo with clients, colleagues and others.
You're willing to change the status quo. You know things could be done cleaner, smarter, better. You're open to change to improve things.
You're ready to step out of the Matrix of disputes. You won't blindly follow experts. You want to manage disputes with wisdom, not false knowledge.
