Chairman of the North American business unit of AKKA Technologies
My guest for Episode #108 of the My Favorite Mistake podcast is Cash Nickerson. He’s the chairman of the North American business unit of AKKA Technologies, he’s a negotiation instructor, and a black belt in karate. He’s a visiting professor at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law and has MBA and JD degrees.
Cash is the author of six books including his latest, a WSJ bestseller: Negotiation as a Martial Art: Techniques to Master the Art of Human Exchange.
In today’s episode, Cash shares his “favorite mistake” story about advising a company in a deal where they ended up overpaying for a major acquisition. Why did Cash see this mistake and then repeat it, before eventually learning the lesson?
We talk about that and other topics including:
- How and when did you take interest in the martial arts?
- How has that helped you in business and negotiating, more specifically??
- Why observing your opponent closely is so important in negotiating or in martial arts
- Things to look out for if you’re concerned about a rash decision, overcommitted?
