I call you to recruit you for a new job.

  • What happens in the brain
  • What is naturally desired by people - intrinsic desire
  • What choices or options mean to a mind. What too many/too few options means
  • What motivates people - primal instinct, reptilian brain
    • Tune out to the sales pitch
    • How do I get rid of this person?

What triggers Fight or Flight response?

  • Create environment of loving, self esteem, self actualization

The Conversation

    • People are busy and don't care about what you are selling
    • “What's happening in your current role…”
    • Test the waters - Question the timing & the Why
