About the event

Dealing with challenging questions is very similar to martial arts like Judo and Aikido: catching the other person’s energy and reforming and reshaping it to answer truthfully and in graciously. In this session we will go into a few techniques you can use to answer people, and how to prepare yourself mentally to stay focused and able to deal with the task at hand:

  • Mentally preparing yourself before the situation
  • What to do when you get stressed about challenging questions
  • RCER technique to deal with objections

This will help you prepare for a difficult meeting, deal with challenges in the moments you are about to be overwhelmed, and in general have a technique ready that can disarm the criticism and answer questions effectively while holding true to your own principles."
