Approach your next negotiation with confidence based on a simple-to-use framework. 


Research shows that women are less likely to negotiate than men, tend to be less persistent when negotiating, and can receive negative feedback when they initiate negotiations. Whether negotiating for a raise, a more flexible working schedule, or other work needs, understanding how negotiation works allows you to confidently initiate and work through these conversations. In this two-hour training session, you will learn an easy-to-use set of principles, have time to practice with peers, and use a toolkit to prepare for your next conversation. The goal will always be to help you find a win-win solution that allows you to do your best work in a way that benefits your team or organization. 


Who Should Attend

Women faculty and staff in higher ed who are preparing for an upcoming negotiation will find this training helpful.
