ASK FOR IT: NEGOTIATION WORKSHOPS
Negotation of contracts.
Negotiation of any kind.
With any colleague, in any situation.
It's on our minds always, as a place for us to grow, as a place for us to notice gender bias and implicit bias overall, and as a place for us to strengthen our own confidence that we bring unique value to our work and to our field. We want to protect our interests, and at the same time we are balancing an awareness that the world is changing around us.
Together, we'll explore a process for identifying the unique, inspiring and powerful value you bring you your work, and using that value and helpful data to begin your negotiations. While negotiation is in some cases about money and salary increase, it's also about appreciation and recognition, for your employers and for you, and we'll think about both. We'll bring together tools and skills gathered from across the not for profit world and from feminist negotiators, from the business world and from advocates who engage in negotiation with Fortune-500 companies and major universities, grounded in data.
We invite you to bring your personal negotiation dilemmas to our session.
Who is this for?
This is for everyone. Everyone deserves the opportunity to improve and polish their negotiation skills, and to develop their capacity to identify and articulate their value.
If you're searching for a new position and want to make sure your negotiation skills position you to your best advantage
If you are negotiating a new contract (in a current or new role) or moving into a new position and negotiating terms
If you'll be serving as a mediator or negotiator for others
If you supervise others who will be negotiating and you'd like to support them
If you recognize that negotiation is a vital tool in your work and you're looking to improve overall
We happen to think this is great for everyone. But we're biased!!
Complementary 30 minute Coaching Session
This session comes with a complementary one-on-one 30 minute coaching session, following this workshop, with session facilitator (and our CEO) Sara Shapiro-Plevan. We believe that this session helps to anchor your learning and root your own personal questions in our practice, help you to develop specific and helpful language, and develop a plan for your negotiation. Please feel free to bring your personal negotiation dilemmas to our session. These sessions are booked following participation in our workshop (a calendar link will be shared upon completion of the workshop).
We limit each public Ask For It Workshop to a maximum of 10 people.
