Negotiating for Women: Move From Avoiding to Confidently Embracing It!

When you read the word “negotiating”, what is your reaction?

Does it sounds something like the following:

“Blecchhhh. I hate doing it…do I really have to?”

“Why bother, the answer is probably “no” anyway.”

“Maybe I’ll get what I want without having to ask…I’ll wait a little longer.”

“I’ll go for it next time.  Really, I will.”

Ironically, if you’re like many women, you are probably quite brilliant at advocating on behalf of someone else, yet not for yourself.

Are you tired of not getting what you want?

Are you exhausted by the energy it takes to avoid negotiating?

Do you convince yourself a negotiation isn’t worth it, if it might hurt or create discomfort in the relationship with the other person?

You’re not alone! Even some of the most successful, high-powered women are uncomfortable with negotiating for themselves and go to great lengths to avoid it. And we’re not just talking about negotiating our salaries, a raise, or a promotion.

As women, we miss opportunities to negotiate all the time, in every area of life! Research has shown that women negotiate four times less often than men and tend to concede much sooner and accept less.  In fact, approximately 20 percent of women don’t negotiate at all.  That’s crazy to imagine, right?  The good news is that it’s never too late to learn how to negotiate like a pro.  Now is the time to take control and finally get everything you deserve! 

This workshop is a co-creation by Kelly Studer and Heidi Kraft.  We are a powerful duo who leverages a combined 40 years of business experience, career success, coaching expertise, and genuine passion to propel professionals to the next level of success.

When you join this interactive workshop, you won’t just learn the tactics, tools and strategies that make you a more skilled negotiator.  This workshop will be going much deeper.  Our approach includes mind-blowing exercises that will help shift your entire mindset, so you will stop avoiding and start confidently embracing negotiating in every area of your life…especially your career.  A bold shift, we know.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • the underlying reasons women avoid negotiating
  • how to reduce the discomfort, fears and anxieties associated with negotiating
  • how to clearly assess and align on what you really want (and need!) so you can ask for it
  • negotiation techniques that really work (and feel good!)

You should attend this workshop if you:

  • believe in investing in yourself because you are worth it
  • recognize that it’s never too late to become an awesome negotiator
  • are tired of avoiding the negotiation process out of discomfort or fear
  • know you deserve more but realize you’re going to have to ask for it
  • enjoy meeting other like-minded, successful women

You’ll leave this workshop with a fresh perspective and genuine excitement to start negotiating immediately.  You’ll see your negotiating confidence soar and will be seizing opportunities to ask for and get more in every area of your life.  You may even enjoy it along the way!

Ready to start negotiating with confidence? It’s an investment in yourself that will pay off in immediate results…but it’s the exponential success that will be the greatest reward.
