Trey Gowdy is a former state and federal prosecutor, four-term member of the U.S. Congress, and the author of Doesn’t Hurt To Ask: Using The Power of Questions To Communicate, Connect, and Persuade. Drawing on his experience in both the courtroom and Congress, he comes at the topic of persuasion from a rather different angle than most experts. If you’re keen to use the power of persuasion to succeed, this is definitely an episode you won’t want to miss.
Listen in to find out the role of a prosecutor in the United States (it probably isn’t what you think!), why Trey has never asked a jury to convict in his opening statements, and why you should be persuadable to be effectively persuasive. You’ll learn what Trey thinks of the Kamala Harris nomination for vice president and whether he sees hope for the future as we head into the end of 2020.
