182: Erin | Former CIA Clandestine Operative

January 8th, 2013

Episode 91 of 606 episodes

Erin emailed me out of the blue one day telling me that what we do and talk about at AoC is "remarkably similar" to what's taught by the CIA at "The Farm". Obviously, my curiosity was piqued, and after verifying that she was the real deal, we decided to do a show together. From 2000 to 2010, Erin served as an Operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), with seven years experience in managing overseas collection operations and counterterrorism activities for the intelligence community. She served as an operations officer in several critical posts in the Middle East as well as extensive travel in Africa, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia, and is experienced in Arab and South Asian issues and cultures. Erin has extensive experience in recruiting appropriate personnel to work within the intelligence community, and has been recognized by senior Agency management for my leadership, planning, organizational abilities and excellent interpersonal skills. In this episode of the show, we take a look at: -Establishing rapport, and why it's the “gateway” to achieve what you are looking for. -Giving-to-get -Confidence vs. Arrogance -Eliciting information Of course, I picked Erin's brain about whether or not she'd had any close calls while on duty, how she got her job (the answer WILL surprise you), and about which CIA skills she uses every day.
