Professional Workshop Format

Working together in small groups with your fellow professionals, we ensure a trusting, confidential environment where you’ll be grouped with those from your industry/sector.

Women negotiate successfully when the situation matters to them and they have good information. Ambiguity is a barrier. (Babcock, 2008) We address these and other challenges by working through an evidence-based practical course guided by professional and experienced facilitators.

  • explore your specific motivation and situation
  • learn about quality information resources
  • hear first-hand about the experience of your peers / experienced business women
  • explore some of the pit falls of women negotiating for themselves
  • learn about evidence-based approaches to successful negotiation

Perhaps most importantly, you’ll practice to gain confidence and develop your own approach.

Evaluate your situation, your motivation, align to market expectations and prepare for the pitfalls.
