Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Women Lead Webinar Series

Exclusively for Premium Access Pass members

Convinced that negotiation requires bluffing, steamrolling, and playing hardball, many women avoid negotiating whenever they can. Women pay for this decision in lost income, delayed career advancement, and under-utilization of their skills.

These are losses women don't need to suffer.

By mastering a few basic principles, planning carefully, and practicing, anyone can become an effective negotiator. This webinar will...

  • Explore the internal and external barriers that often prevent women from negotiating effectively
  • Introduce "best practice" negotiation strategy
  • Describe ways to maximize one's bargaining power
  • Set the right targets for a negotiation
  • Manage the anxiety women often feel around this essential workplace skill
