How To Use Social Hacking In Negotiation
When you hear the term “social hacking” you might think of a covert, manipulative way of prying into someone’s life. That’s not at all what we’re talking about when we apply the term to negotiation. Social hacking is an approach to information gathering that comes from the discipline known as “Social Engineering.” That's a field that my guest, Chris Hadnagy has become known for.
Chris is the CEO, Founder, and Chief Human Hacker of Social-Engineering, LLC, and author of the phenomenal book, “Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking.” In this conversation, you’re going to learn what social engineering really is, why it doesn’t have to be a negative thing, and how to use its techniques to gather information and gain a competitive advantage that leads to success in your negotiation and procurement responsibilities.
