I'm a Complex Negotiations Strategist and the Chair of Dispute Intelligence², the world's only special intelligence training program in commercial negotiations, deal-making and disputes.
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 that he never has any real fires to put out.
At Dispute Intelligence², I teach individuals who manage high-stakes deal-making and disputes how to create and leverage real value in commercial negotiations, and then after that, how to manage disputes with Dispute Intelligence² (without a team of lawyers or dirty tricks).
Big claim, right? Not when you have genius strategies, tools and systems backed by over 1,000GB Intelligence² on human dynamics x tested extensively in commercial practice, not available anywhere else on the planet. This Intelligence² has served me and clients to save more money than I'd care to say, not to mention our pride, sanity and faith in humanity.
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.
