Get Yours | A Negotiation Workshop

Learn How To

  • Prepare for negotiations

  • Answer the dreaded “expected salary” question

  • Swiftly build trust across the table

  • Make your ask with confidence

  • Embrace creative thinking for win-win solutions; and

  • Avoid common pitfalls

Asking for what you want — nay — deserve is not always easy. And as women, we tend to be even more inclined to shy away from these conversations. Fear, imposter syndrome, past experiences can all get in the way. But, as with all of life’s challenges the right tools and a little practice might be just what you need to negotiate your salary or freelance rates, ask for more talent to support your drowning team or make sure your workplace is set up to accommodate your changing needs — think new mothers without a place to pump. Get Yours | A Negotiation Workshop is designed to equip you with these tools and give you the time to practice with an expert so you can enter your next negotiation confident and ready to get your next big win.
