"The internal dynamics between me and the other 3-person co-founder team was making decision-making difficult and causing unnecessary conflict. Bryant was instrumental in helping me manage this while giving me tools for effective conflict management. His framework was easy to learn, and it made dealing with the interpersonal issues easy!

Bryant Galindo

Hey there, I'm Bryant. A negotiation trainer & mediator for startups.

I train you in how to have the difficult conversations you should be having with your business partners, getting your business relationship back on track. 

I've seen the common mistakes that co-founders get themselves in:

Avoiding issues until the erupt later on;

Not wanting to see another side;

Not knowing how to disagree collaboratively; 

And relying on the past as an indicator for how things should be presently. 

I've helped scores of startup founders get unstuck, find peace, and confidently maneuver their co-founder relationship into a new paradigm, rapidly growing their business as a result. 

 

Let me help you help yourself


FAQs

HOW LONG ARE PROGRAMS?

Programs are customizable to meet the founders' needs. Typically, to see results, a minimum of 3 months is needed to have lasting behavioral change. Clients work with me between 3-6 months on average. 

Are you a business therapist?

Now, I would never call myself that. But past clients have referred to our work together as such. I challenge you to be honest and frank with me. The founders that get the best results are usually those that do. I won't stop you from referring to our work together as "business therapy" if it helps you conceptualize it better ;) 

Just know that I'll challenge you to see things from a new perspective as well as giving you high-pressure negotiation and conflict management tools. 

Do you work with just about anyone?

No. It has to be the right fit. And by that I mean the founder or founder team that is approaching me must recognize they are having issues that require an outside expert to help solve and they are eager to learn. Those are the type of clients I enjoy working with. 

What kind of results can I expect?

Beyond just becoming a badass business communicator, you'll learn: 

  • A structure for negotiating sensitive business issues; 

  • Communicate more assertively & directly;

  • How to create a productive dialogue;

  • Feeling powerful in business exchanges; and 

  • A toolkit of strategies for negotiating hard-to-solve business conversations

So how much does this cost?

I work with different price points and my programs are entirely customizable, including whether or not you want me "on-call" 24/7 via text or email for on-going support. A typical 3-month program ranges between $2,500 - $3,500 and 6-month programs are $4,500 - $6,000. Prices are per founder.

Discounts for 3 + founder teams are available.  This however does not include travel costs if in-person training is being requested. 

If I feel you are the right fit, and you may not be able to afford me, we can discuss a lower tired program or I could refer you to someone in my network.
