Negotiation Skills – Ask for What You Deserve!
Many women have difficulty negotiating without feeling overly aggressive. Worse, in an effort to be perceived as nice, women often give up our power by not asking for what we really want. Whether you are striving for your next promotion, salary increase or buy‐in for a new idea, good negotiation skills are critical to your success. Learn tips on preparing for negotiation, developing the courage to ask for what you want, knowing when to push and when to back off, building your credibility before and during a negotiation and when and how to get support from others in achieving your goals.
