Meet Gary Noesner - author, instructor, investigator, and FBI negotiator.
Gary served as the lead hostage negotiator during the first 25 days of the 51 day siege in Waco TX. His book Stalling for Time, My life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator became the framework with the Netflix mini-series WACO.
In his words, "I've talked about WACO more in the past couple months than in my entire career, but if you don't know history you're destined to repeat it."
We explore what it feels like to be negotiating relationships from every angle in crisis situations, and how the lessons from these experiences can apply to everyday life.
There were so many great parts of this conversation, but my favorite takeaway is this: The best answer you can give is the most truthful - even if it's, "I don't know."
