Chris Voss was the FBI's lead hostage negotiator. In this episode you'll learn how you can apply the same skills he used to negotiate with bank robbers and terrorists to your everyday life. Life is a series of negotiations you should be prepared for: buying a car, negotiating a salary, buying a home, renegotiating rent, deliberating with your partner. Taking emotional intelligence and intuition to the next level, this conversation can give you the competitive edge in any discussion.

We were so luck to get a chance to talk to Miguel Ruiz Jr. You probably know his father, who wrote the book The Four Agreements.

Miguel has taken the wisdom of his father and grandmother to build an incredible life, and much of his learnings are found in his latest book The Mastery of Self

In today's episode we talk about what it was like living with the success of his father, how that effected him and how he came out living a life of true authenticity.

The ManTalks Podcast - 63: Joe Solmonese

Joe Solmonese is a fighter. Just ask President Obama (we talk about this in the interview). 

Under Joe Solmonese's leadership, the Human Rights Campaign (the largest LGBT civil rights organization in the United States) became the model other organizations look toward to create effective social and political change. By using the anger raging from the social injustices he was witnessing, the anger of his adversaries and his followers, HRC was instrumental in passing landmark national legislation such as the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act; repealing “Don't Ask, Don't Tell”; and passing marriage equality acts in eight states.

How did Solmonese do it?

In our interview Solmonese tells Roger that for him, the key to success was learning to harness his anger. Essentially it's just a form of energy. Channeled, it can keep you moving forward on a long journey. But uncontrolled, it can blow everything up.

  • What was in your past that lead you to fight for these causes? (21:11)
  • Can you describe your book? (24:39)
  • Did you have a time in your life when anger was proving to be detrimental in your life? (28:42)
  • How can you channel your anger when you fail? (47:59)
  • How is the world dealing with anger in our present day? (54:03)
  • What's the legacy you want to leave? (58:03)
