Learn how to authentically use both soft and hard persuasion and influence in your start-up, with your co-founders, your board, your investors and your team. You will learn techniques that have been developed and honed over multiple start-ups, large organizations, international peace-building missions and large multi-party high-stakes negotiations.

The bootcamp draws from the latest negotiation theory, behavioral science and psychology and provides tactical training on how to persuade and influence at work.

The bootcamp kicks off with an orientation session to set goals and norms for the bootcamp. You will then meet with your coach  two times a month virtually (via video conference) for 90 minutes for 3 months.

Each session consists of structured exercises, facilitated exploration of issues and open space to work through relevant areas for growth.

The intention of your bootcamp is to give you the skills to thoughtfully and effectively influence and persuade, all facilitated by a coach who's focus is to help you grow as a person and as a leader.

Price: $1750/month for 3 months
