Lack of confidence in negotiating can hurt our ability to be an impactful leader – and reduce our ability to influence those around us for positive change. In many situations, women suffer from this fear or inability to negotiate well. Whether it’s buying the next family car, or negotiating a raise during a performance review with our boss, women often shy away from bargaining, as they feel they lack the right skill set. And yet, being a dynamic leader requires a call to action – get empowered at the negotiation table to raise the bar for yourself, and for those around you. The goal is to gain more confidence. Use this workshop to overcome your negotiating challenges and enhance your performance! After all, women do have strengths to leverage – Think Collaboration, not Conflict!
