Make Negotiation Your Super Power

Wednesday, November 4th @ 12pm PT / 3pm ET

Very few of us feel confident walking into a negotiation – for a sale, a complex contract, or especially our own salaries or raises (ladies, us especially it seems!). Interesting fact: According to Harvard, men excel at negotiating their own compensation, women excel at negotiating for their teams. And ALL of us get just a little nervous talking dollars and cents.

So, let’s tackle this with tips and strategies for all of us. Every perspective in one hour: The male and female Senior Sales Executive hiring a team + negotiating contracts. The Recruiter representing the company AND the potential employee. The CFO who sees the numbers, knows the regulations AND what’s on the table.

Whether you’re a high-level sales executive or a professional new to the workforce, we’ve got you. If you’d love to negotiate but scared to during COVID, come find out how negotiating has changed this year.

  • Negotiating employment
  • Negotiating contracts
  • Negotiating during COVID
  • Negotiating a raise
  • How women negotiate differently
  • Tips for success we can all use

You’ll leave this discussion feeling confident and comfortable when it comes to negotiating just about anything!

Can’t make it? Register anyway and we’ll send over the recording after.
